You must get involved to have an impact
Whether you are a resident wanting to learn more about climate change’s effect on communities, a governmental official preparing for disruptions to municipal infrastructure, a teacher wanting to bring climate science into the classroom, or a student responding to the urgency of the matter:
GenCLEO IS YOUR MOVEMENT!
Together we can make Florida climate-literate, change our policies and save our state – US’s tropical paradise. Florida will be an example of what happens when we educate communities at a grassroots level. Education is power, and CLEO is leading the fight in Florida.
Youth Empowerment- CLEO has a large youth empowerment movement made up of High School students, University students, and millennials. We have meet-ups, volunteer opportunities, and climate trainings!
Teachers Network- We educate teachers and school administrators to effectively implement Climate Across the Curriculum in their schools. Join our Teachers Network today!
CLEO Speakers Network: We need advocates for climate change! CLEO will build your knowledge of climate science, the urgency, and solutions, so that you can effectively communicate climate change information as a CLEO-certified climate speaker. We provide you with resources and coaching from experts to help develop your presentation.
GenCLEO Climate Literacy Education- Through our trainings, town halls, forums, and climate interactive workshops we aim to educate the public on the climate science, seriousness, and solutions to build an informed and engaged public that will demand climate action.
- Under-resourced communities: CLEO conducts listening sessions with local community leaders and engaged activists to understand their concerns. Then, we facilitate a Climate Change 101 workshop to help people connect the dots between climate change and the impacts they are experiencing. Lastly, the community drafts an agenda and CLEO convenes a forum or town hall with residents, city and county staff, scientists, and local business leaders to discuss concerns and solutions.
Neighborhood civic associations: CLEO conducts Climate Change 101 trainings at homeowner and civic associations to inform residents on the science, seriousness, and solutions facing South Florida.
Faith-based groups: CLEO works with faith-based groups by conducting listening sessions and Climate Change 101 trainings that address the concerns of the community to help connect the dots between climate change and climate equity issues.
Business Partnerships- We partner with businesses across South Florida to advance their climate action through our Lunch and Learn program.
Municipal and Mayor’s Roundtable Partnerships: We convene an annual roundtable where government officials share climate resiliency efforts and ideas in their cities and communities. We also provide climate literacy training workshops to municipalities across South Florida.
