Climate Leadership Corps Training

Join us for the Climate Leadership Corps Training in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on October 17-19, 2017. Submit your application at www.climaterealitytraining.org


Over the course of three days, you will have the opportunity to hear from experts who will share information about the science behind the climate crisis as well as their experiences educating and engaging diverse networks and communities. You will also have the chance to connect with a group of extraordinary leaders from a variety of sectors and countries around the world.


"Life changing," "re-affirming," and "empowering" are just some of the ways past participants have described their experience. Come as a leader, leave as a Climate Reality Leader.


Session topics and speakers 


During the training, you’ll hear from The Climate Reality Project Chairman and founder, former U.S. Vice President Al Gore, as well as world-class scientists, strategists, communicators, and technical specialists about the science of climate change and the direct cost impacts are having on communities around the world. Most importantly, you’ll learn about the solutions that are available today. You will also learn a twenty-first-century skillset in storytelling, public speaking, social media networking, and media engagement from successful grassroots organizers who will share best practices for positive impact.


The Climate Reality Leadership Corps training will bring together scientists, non-profits, civil servants, and policy-makers to craft strategies and action plans towards a sustainable future for Canada, the North American continent, and around the world.


The Canada training will cover topics such as:

  • Climate Science
  • Solutions for the climate crisis

You probably already have a few questions about the training. Here are the answers to the most common questions we receive:

  • There is no cost to attend the training. However, participants must pay for their own travel and accommodations.
  • All training sessions are in English.
  • Within a year of completing the training with the Climate Reality Leadership Corps you are required to perform ten “Acts of Leadership.” Acts of Leadership come in a variety of forms and can be completed in your local community. Examples of Acts of Leadership include giving a presentation, writing a blog, writing a letter to the editor, organizing a film screening, organizing a climate change-related campaign, meeting with government leaders, and organizing a day of action. Most Acts of Leadership will come from giving presentations, including speaking events you arrange yourself and events arranged for you through requests that come in through Climate Reality. The Climate Reality Leadership Corps will offer as much support as possible but you will be responsible for seeking out opportunities to take action.
  • Participants must attend all three days of the training.
