A few times a year, we’re lucky enough to gather activists — from teachers and faith leaders to doctors, stay-at-home parents, and much more — at Climate Reality Leadership Corps trainings.
Last year, during our training in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, trainees were asked to share their climate stories with us – and it was powerful. Tony Loyd nearly drowned. After what started as a bit of unexpected summertime fun turned dire, he found himself stranded and exhausted at the bottom of a lake, fighting for his life. Luckily, with some resilience on his part and the aid of a friend, he emerged from the depths alive – and ready to dedicate his second chance to making a difference.
And Charleen Winger Jones greeted her fellow Climate Reality Leaders in her native language of Anishinaabemowin before sharing her story about one of the challenges Indigenous peoples face because of climate change. Charleen’s community is facing a water crisis, one that is making clean drinking water hard to come by and forcing many to abandon long-held traditions, like ice fishing. She shared how she is raising awareness about the preciousness of water – and how it is threatened in our warming world.
In 2020, we’re hosting four trainings, beginning with one in Las Vegas, Nevada, March 8-10, and we’d love for you to join us.
The other trainings will be held in:
San Antonio, Texas: April 14-16, 2020 (applications are now being accepted!)
Raleigh, North Carolina: June 29-July 1, 2020
Detroit, Michigan: August 11-13, 2020
Orlando, Florida: Early September, 2020
Will you join us?
These intensive, three-day trainings will provide attendees with the tools, knowledge, and network to mobilize communities and catalyze real climate solutions.
After the training, you’ll join our over-20,000-strong Climate Reality Leadership Corps, a global network of trained activists committed to spreading awareness of the climate crisis and working for solutions.
