The Climate Reality Project
In 2006, Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore got the world talking about climate change with the Academy Award-winning film, An Inconvenient Truth. It was just the beginning of a climate revolution, and later that year, he founded The Climate Reality Project to move the conversation forward and turn awareness into action. The Climate Reality Project works to accelerate the global transition to clean energy and to help create a sustainable future by mobilizing volunteers and communities via four key programs.
CLIMATE REALITY LEADERSHIP CORPS
Climate Reality Leaders are regular citizens from all walks of life concerned about the climate crisis and committed to taking action to solve it. Leaders attend a multi-day training where they attend sessions with Vice President Gore and a host of other field-leading experts, gaining the organizing and communications skills to mobilize their communities to act. Find out how you can become a Climate Reality Leader.
CLIMATE REALITY CHAPTERS
Climate Reality Chapters bring the global success of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps to the local level, uniting Climate Reality Leaders, community members, and fellow climate and sustainability partners around meaningful action at the front lines of the climate movement. This joining of local forces enables the development of effective local campaigns and initiatives through shared expertise, resources, and strategic know-how. Climate Reality: Pittsburgh & SWPA is among the first Climate Reality Chapters.
Campus Corps empowers college and university students to form Climate Reality chapters at their respective institutions of higher education across the country and help educated and assist their schools in making a transition to 100-percent renewable energy source.
CLIMATE SPEAKERS NETWORK
