The Climate Boot Camp
The Climate Action Workshop is for people who recognize we face an environmental crisis and want to take action, but want to know more about what action to take and how to be more effective. This workshop leads individuals and organizations thru the process of creating and adopting an effective and informed sustainability strategy.
All of our organizations must be activated for sustainability quickly in order to avoid the worst consequences. In order to activate these organizations, people who are already established in those organizations must speak up and must take action … now.
This workshop was developed in a joint Climate Reality and Harvard Alumni for the Climate and Environment project. It is a guide to moving beyond awareness into taking action. 52 expert climate leaders explain what needs to be done about the Climate Crisis and how to get it done – in a series of 8-to-15-minute presentations.
This comprehensive, self-guided workshop allows the trainee to select the relevant materials and leads the trainee singularly, or with their team thru a step-by-step process of developing their personal action plan and one for their organization.
The workshop includes 7.5-hours of overview lectures plus 5 optional hours on the emerging technologies proving effective to create profitable sustainability. It features global experts from Climate Reality, Harvard, Yale, SMU, Bioneers, Project Drawdown, the Children’s Environmental Literacy Foundation, the Biomimicry Institute, government and many other leading organizations. These lectures are supported by expertly curated links to sites that provide the student with the detailed, accurate knowledge on the technologies and skills needed to build a sustainability plan and to create the support to get it implemented. Each student receives this free e0workbook with 160 curated drill down links to lectures, web sites, pod casts, music, art and film. Individuals and organizations can schedule their own small group discussions and work sessions to complete the planning exercises.
