Learn How To Become A Neighborhood Leader On Climate Change

Aug 8, 2017

Temperatures are getting hotter and the seas are rising, and if we want to stay in South Florida, we’re going to have to adapt. But that can be tricky to talk about. It’s hard to think about the threat of giving up our homes.


Luckily, there's an event Wednesday night where you can learn how to lead conversations about climate change science and solutions. It's a training session hosted by the Miami-based CLEO Institute, a non-profit whose mission is to get leaders and private citizens alike supporting global action on climate change.


The session will feature a presentation from a climate change biologist and feedback sessions on other presentations that are currently being developed. CLEO staff members say the event is open to anyone who’s interested in educating others on climate change, and that you can learn about future learning, teaching and speaking opportunities if you go.


The session is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday at The Innovation Center at the Cushman School, 592 NE 60th St., Miami.
