Elisabeth D. Webster and Stephen C. Webster have again been selected as mentors for Climate Reality Leadership Corps‘ training August 28 – 30, 2018 in Los Angeles, and we’ll be on the ground in California all week on business.
Drop us a line if you’ll be there, too!
More on the climate conference from the press release linked above:
Without concerted climate action from the rest of the country and the world, the impacts of climate change – expansive wildfires, debilitating drought, and deadly heat waves – will only worsen in California, disproportionately affecting the frontline communities living throughout the state. Studies show the climate crisis puts an undue burden on low-income and minority populations, who frequently experience the brunt of dangerous climate impacts like heat waves. Over the course of the training, trainees will have the opportunity to explore issues related to environmental justice and learn about the crisis’ outsized impact on historically marginalized groups.
The training’s wide-ranging sessions will explore how participants can raise public awareness of the climate crisis, build support for the practical solutions available today, and strengthen climate action efforts in their communities. Participants will also learn how to give 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. Attendees will explore the latest climate science, breakthroughs in solutions, and communications skills for twenty-first century activism.
