OUR CLIMATE REALITY LEADERS
SPOTLIGHT: 4 CLIMATE REALITY LEADERS
Upper Kingsclear, New Brunswick
Training : Nashville, 2007
Latest Act of Leadership : 4 school presentations in one day, for a total of about 750 attendees
“To me, climate change is a big octopus, with its tentacles reaching into every facet of our world and our lives. We know what’s causing it, and we know what the solutions are. In fact, we already have all the solutions we need; the only things missing are AWARENESS, COMMITMENT and ACTION, on the part of leaders and individuals. That’s why 24 Hours of Reality is so important: its aim is to help us reach as many people as possible, all around the world, as quickly as possible, so we can pursue the solutions we need.”
Joyce Lee and Jeremy Theal
Training: Mexico City, 2018
Latest Act of Leadership: 3 presentations in one day, for 24 Hours of Reality: Truth in Action
Dr. Joyce Lee and Dr. Jeremy Theal were trained as Climate Reality Leaders in Mexico City, 2018. They are inspired to act on the climate crisis because they are both physicians, and they are concerned about the health effects of climate change on their patients. Also, they are parents of a 5-year-old girl, and they believe that leaving her a livable planet is the best gift they can give her. As a husband and wife team, they have contributed over 50 Acts of Leadership and given over 30 presentations, reaching more than 1,200 people. They have started a website and Twitter/Instagram social media feed to share their climate change learnings (www.truthonclimate.com, @truthonclimate), and have inspired several other individuals to attend trainings with Climate Reality.
