Climate Reality Leadership Corps

Who We Are

Climate Reality Leaders are an extraordinary group of people from around the world that are unified around the same cause, spreading the truth about climate change and inspiring action on the climate crisis. Climate Reality Leaders are trained by the Chairman and Founder of the Climate Reality Project, former Vice President Al Gore to educate others about climate change and tackle the crisis head on. They’re engaging their communities with Acts of Leadership, building networks of truth, and inspiring solutions and action in their communities.

The Climate Reality Project operates in eight international offices: Australia, Canada, India, Indonesia, Mexico, South Africa, Turkey, and the United Kingdom.

The Climate Reality Leadership Corps has hosted 24 trainings since 2006 in locations across the globe. In 2013, the trainings were held in Chicago and Istanbul. The 2014 trainings will take place in Australia, Brazil and South Africa.

There are now nearly 6,000 trained Climate Reality Leaders in more than 100 countries educating their communities about climate change and we hope that the movement will continue to grow.
