The programme provides the training in climate science, communications, and organising to tell the story of climate change and inspire communities everywhere to take action. The training is delivered by Al Gore, renowned climate scientists and communicators.
The Climate Reality Leaders aim to educate and inspire individuals and organisations on climate change awareness and action as part of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, there are now over 35,000 Climate Reality Leaders now trained worldwide, with over 1,000 in the UK and 7 in West Sussex working to inspire people to live more in harmony with planet earth.
The aim of the presentation is to break down the complex terms of science and policy into the language of everyday life, so that people everywhere can understand how climate change directly affects them. They can then join the millions of people worldwide in making changes to their everyday lives which will make a real difference. There is information about the negative effects humans are having on the planet which sustains us, but as Carrie adds “the presentation also includes lots of statistics, evidence and reasons to be cheerful”.
