  • Causes & effects of global warming
  • Earth’s current vital signs
  • Impacts of climate change on South Florida:

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.
