“Instead of looking for hope, look for action. Once we start to act, hope is everywhere."

– Greta Thunberg

It’s time we start to act; and at The Climate Reality Project Canada, we’re in the business of inspiring the world to do so.

On November 20thand 21st 2019, the 20, 000 Climate Reality Leaders trained by Al Gore to give free presentations on the science and solutions of the climate crisis will be mobilizing for a worldwide day of grassroots climate education and action.

24 Hours of Reality: Truth in Action is a chance to speak truth about what’s happening to our planet, and to transform intention into action by learning about the solutions and tools available today. It’s a chance to connect with fellow concerned citizens, and to learn how we can all use our voices, our votes and our everyday choices to make a difference and to force our leaders to act. Now.

What Happens on November 20–21?

  • For one full day, Climate Reality Leader volunteers lead free conversations and presentations on the climate crisis and its solutions, with events in schools, workplaces, community centers and more all around the world.
