This summer, you have a chance to do just that by becoming a Climate Reality Leader at our training in Houston, Texas on August 16–18. And whether or not you call Texas home, we hope you’ll join us.
As average temperatures have increased over the past five decades thanks to rising greenhouse gas emissions, more intense floods, droughts, and heat waves are becoming a regular fact of life for more and more parts of the world. And that’s especially true in the Lone Star State.
But the good news is Texas hasn’t just been on the receiving end of climate change – it’s also become a national leader in clean energy solutions, thanks to an abundance of wind energy. Between its wide open spaces and the flatlands of the Great Plains, Texas is perfectly situated for steady, sustained winds ideal for energy production.
We’re heading to Houston to explore this success story in the making and hear how regular Texans are taking practical steps to stop the climate change devastating their state – and helping transform its economy along the way. It’s an important story with important lessons about the future of our planet for all of us, no matter where we live.
At this three-day event, you’ll learn more about the clean energy revolution underway in Texas. You’ll also learn from former US Vice President Al Gore how to talk to people everywhere about the urgent crisis we face. You’ll learn the key science behind climate change and the latest on the solutions we have today. And you’ll work with experts in fields like communications, climate science, and grassroots organizing to learn how to inspire audiences to take action on the greatest challenge of our time.
Ready to get started? Apply now to join us at our next Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Houston and help us build the movement that will stop climate change and create a healthy future for our planet.
