The Nevada Conservation League Education Fund is excited to be a partner for the 44th Climate Reality Leadership Corps Training right here in Las Vegas, Nevada. The training will take place March 8 – 10 at the Aria.
DEADLINE TO APPLY is January 31, 2020. Sign-up here
Climate Reality Project and former Vice President Al Gore will host the 44th Climate Reality Leadership Corps Training for climate activists in Las Vegas. The training will feature key local, national and international speakers from business, communications and scientific realms who will train the next crop of Climate Reality Leaders. Participants will emerge from the training with the practical tools to communicate about the climate crisis and its solutions and take action to help build a diverse, equitable and inclusive climate movement. Participants will also learn how to give a version of the presentation made famous by the Oscar-winning film An Inconvenient Truth and seen in the 2017 follow-up film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.
The training comes at a critical time. Scientists warn that unless we slash global emissions within the next decade, dangerous impacts like disappearing water supplies, endless wildfire seasons, and deadly heatwaves could become the new normal in Nevada and across the American West.
Participants at the training will learn about the economic opportunities for both cities and rural areas presented by the energy transition and how to make the economic case for climate action. The training will also highlight the reality that equitable climate solutions demand that everyone has access to clean air and water, affordable clean energy, and job opportunities in the new green economy.
