OUR CLIMATE TRAININGS
“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” -William Butler Yeats
Understand the most current scientific data, how climate change is at the root of most of the issues your care about, and what solutions you can take to make a real difference. Our climate trainings typically run between 1-2 hours.
Our trainings will give you an understanding of the following:
- Causes & effects of global warming
- Earth’s current vital signs
- Impacts of climate change on South Florida:
- Sea Level Rise
- Solutions we can implement individually and collectively to reduce the carbon footprint
YOU MUST GET INVOLVED IF YOU WANT TO HAVE AN IMPACT
We are empowering the next class of climate ambassadors to advocate for a resilient future. We are educating teachers and school administrators to include climate education into their curriculum, and we are partnering with businesses and municipalities to integrate climate action in their sustainability planning.
With corporate sponsorship CLEO is able to offer free climate change trainings to the community. Our goal is to help people connect the dots between climate change, its current effects, and how it is a threat multiplier, so they can take climate action.
