Aus_diamondlockupClimate Change is arguably the most important issue facing our global community, and The Climate Reality Project is an organization that is leading the way to create Climate Reality Leaders. In fact, it’s director, Mario E. Molina, is a valued friend of ISV’s, having directed programs in numerous ISV host countries for 7 years prior to focussing on his passion of Global Climate Change!

In support of this program, ISV’s International Program Director, Narelle Webber, will be attending the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training program in Melbourne Australia from June 25 to 27, 2014.  There’s still time to apply to join the training program!   See the below press release from Climate Reality Project for more information:

Applications open now to be trained by former Vice President Al Gore and other experts to become a Climate Reality Leader

Melbourne, Australia (April 24, 2014) – Today, The Climate Reality Project opened applications for the 25th Climate Reality Leadership Corps training program, which will take place June 25-27 in Melbourne, Australia. This will be the 4th training on the continent and will be held in partnership with The Australian Conservation Foundation.

Former Vice President and Climate Reality Project Chairman Al Gore will lead the training, alongside world-class climate scientists, political strategists, communication experts, community organizers and activists. These trainers will teach participants about the science of climate change, and how to communicate about its effects on individuals.

The purpose of this intensive program is to formally train a new cadre of Climate Reality Leaders, who can become change-agents in their own communities. They will emerge from the program as energized and skilled communicators with the knowledge, tools, and drive to educate diverse communities on the costs of carbon pollution and what can be done to solve the climate crisis.

“I am thrilled to return to Australia for another training this June,”said Al Gore, Chairman and Founder of The Climate Reality Project. “We have taken these trainings around the world, and in every community committed leaders are standing up to take action on the climate crisis. Our goal is to provide them with the best possible tools to become even more effective leaders in their schools, businesses, houses of worship, and local and national governments.”

The Climate Reality Project has recently held trainings in Istanbul, Chicago, and Johannesburg. They have trained nearly 7,000 Climate Reality Leaders from more than 100 countries and have chosen Melbourne to host this training to address the significant climate impacts already being felt in areas such as public health, emergency response, and disaster relief in Australia and the larger Asia Pacific region.
