OUR CLIMATE REALITY LEADERS
SPOTLIGHT: 3 CLIMATE REALITY LEADERS
Training: The Climate Reality Project Leadership Corps Global Training (online), 2020
Featured Act of Leadership: Sophia Mathur and Greater Sudbury's Fridays For Future have organized fun events that have been attended by many local politicians from all levels of government nine times since COVID-19 began to discuss the climate crisis, how it relates to everything around us and the other crises we face, and the need to listen to experts.
"I am proud to be trained by Climate Reality at such a young age. I have been inspired to take initiative in innovative and creative ways to inspire other community members to get involved and to see the importance of our climate emergency."
Victoria, British Columbia
Training: Montréal, 2008
Featured Act of Leadership: Outreached to B.C. Climate Reality Leaders on Earth Day 2020.
“It has been an honour to be part of Climate Reality for over 12 years. Attending the first training in Canada in 2008 in Montréal was a life-changing event for me. I love my role as Lead Mentor for B.C. and have had the pleasure of connecting with hundreds of Climate Leaders over the years. I have been largely focused on youth engagement and empowering young people as environmental leaders. Now more than ever, it is critical that we keep connected with each other and support each other as Climate Reality Leaders. The COVID-19 pandemic requires us to find new ways to connect and continue this important work."
Training: Nashville, 2010
Featured Act of Leadership: Participated in Manitoba Earth Week Online, a series of daily livestreams for Earth Day 2020.
“Is our response to the COVID-19 emergency a rehearsal for addressing the climate crisis? There are some pretty important parallels: 1) Scientific facts matter and have to be taken seriously, 2) Delayed response costs lives and hurts the economy, and 3) We need bold, globally-coordinated policy leadership."
