I was recently accepted as one of 600 people, from around the world, to be trained in Chicago, as a member of the Climate Reality Leadership Corp.
All around the world, volunteers of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, trained by our Chairman and former Vice President Al Gore are standing up and making a difference on the climate crisis. They’re leading by example, speaking to their communities about how climate change affects their daily lives—and what we can do to solve it. They’re appearing in the media, activating social networks, and—most of all—inspiring people everywhere to join us in confronting the defining issue of our time.
I am looking to get funding to recoup the cost of air travel and hotel for the training which will take place during the work week. This is an all volunteer program.
As a result of this training, I am committing to at least 10 acts of leadership on climate change. My initial plans will be to present to friends and family, my local community (including city hall and community organizations), my Alumni Association and various clubs I am involved in. I am also looking to speak with the Building Industry Association, the California Farm Association, city planning groups, and education associations. One of my first speaking engagements may actually be for the United Nations Association film festival on climate change in October.
Thank you for your funding for the cost of my training. *As a volunteer member of the Climate Reality Leadership Corp we are not allowed to accept payment for our presentations, and only enough to cover the exact amount of our travel costs, no higher.
