Climate Reality Leaders are an extraordinary group of people from around the world that are unified around the same cause, spreading the truth about climate change and inspiring action on the climate crisis. Climate Reality Leaders are trained by the Chairman and Founder of the Climate Reality Project, former Vice President Al Gore to educate others about climate change and tackle the crisis head on. They’re engaging their communities with Acts of Leadership, building networks of truth, and inspiring solutions and action in their communities.
In 2014, Climate Reality Leadership Corps trainings will take place in Africa and South America. The Africa Training will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa from March 12 to March 14. The South America training will be held in Brazil with additional details forthcoming.
Climate Reality Leaders emerge from training sessions as energized and skilled communicators with the knowledge, tools, and drive to educate and empower diverse audiences and communities. You will learn the latest science of climate change, best practices in public speaking, social media, leadership skills, communication strategies, community outreach and organizing.
