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.
