Imagine hundreds of thousands of us responding in writing, in person or by video to the CLEO Project question, "What is climate change all about, and what's my role?". The Project is designed to celebrate participants, individually and in groups, who find and share their voices in this global conversation.
The CLEO Project on Climate allows for meaningful social learning around the topic of climate change, providing rich web resources and coordinating voluntary science cafes, movie nights, forums, workshops, communication contests, eco-art showcases, etc., culminating with an intergenerational, interdisciplinary CLEO Project TEDx event that will honor the achievements of all participants.
Initiated in South Florida and online. To date, The CLEO Project on Climate Phase I participants include individuals and groups from areas throughout Florida, and from Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, California, Illinois, Canada and Germany. Over time, and as strategic partners are identified, we expect CLEO Projects will be replicated in cities around the nation and globally.
The CLEO Project on Climate is inclusive and celebratory, facilitating open-ended learning on the issue of climate change. The Project casts a wide net, turns the question over to the individual, provides resources and opportunities to learn more, and celebrates participation at every level.
PHASE I – FIND YOUR VOICE: ANSWER THE QUESTION In this phase, participants sign up as individuals or as part of a team and prepare a personal response to the project question: "What is climate change all about, and what's my role?" Responses should be creative, impactful and succinct - preferably no more than three pages written or three minutes videotaped. CLEO evaluates, celebrates and showcases responses.
PHASE II – JOIN CLIMATE LEADERSHIP TRAININGSHere, participants ready to become climate scholars and communicators, attend scheduled CLEO Climate Leadership training workshops, led by scientists, educators, and communicators. The basic and advanced trainings also assist participants in preparing for and hosting or co-hosting their own forums, small or large, formal or informal.Trainees become part of the CLEO Speakers Network, sharing opportunities and resources. They may also become facilitators of Introductory or Basic Training sessions. Trainings educate and empower individuals and use research-based approaches to explain climate science, solutions, and communication strategies. Designed for both general and specific audiences, they include:
