Description:  Across the US Southwest, people are feeling the effects of the climate crisis. Most noticeably, they’re feeling the heat. In recent years, summers in the region have become an endless series of record-breaking heat waves. And decades-long droughts are drying out rivers and reservoirs, creating thousand-acre tinderboxes just waiting for the next wildfire. All the while, the most vulnerable among us are suffering the impacts of this crisis first and worst. But with vast, open desert spaces providing some of the nation’s highest solar potential, the region can also be a major player in helping to power the just transition to a clean energy future. That’s why – from June 11-13 in Las Vegas, Nevada – The Climate Reality Project and former Vice President Al Gore will host the 49th Climate Reality Leaderships Corps training for climate activists across the US Southwest.

This two-and-a-half day free training provides those ready to make a difference with the tools, knowledge, and networks to mobilize communities and drive real action for climate solutions. The training gives attendees an opportunity to learn directly from Vice President Gore about how to raise awareness of the climate crisis and inspire people to act, just as he did with the landmark films "An Inconvenient Truth" and "An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power".

  • You’ll learn how to become an effective activist and leader, equipped with essential skills for public speaking, influencing decision-makers, advocacy, community organizing, and more. 
  • You’ll hear from regional experts on the climate crisis and how we can solve it, with a particular focus on climate justice and public health, building green communities, and making a just transition to clean energy. 
  • You’ll gain a deeper understanding of the relationship between the climate crisis and environmental justice issues. 
  • You’ll connect with Climate Reality Leaders and learn about our global network of activists.
  • And you’ll network with individuals and organizations leading the charge for solutions to the most-pressing issue of our time.

Languages: This training will be delivered in English. Simultaneous Spanish interpretation will be offered during some sessions. Este entrenamiento se impartirá en inglés. Sin embargo, traducción simultánea en español será ofrecida durante algunas sesiones.
