Apply for Leadership Training

Join Al Gore at Climate Reality’s next training! 

Dates have been announced for the next Climate Reality Leadership Training.   You are strongly urged to apply as soon as possible.  The application cutoff date has been extended to March 26, 2021, but it could fill up before then.   Mentors are also needed.  (See links, below, to apply.)

Applications for the April Training are NOW CLOSED.  Watch for further details on training this Fall.


There will be three leadership training opportunities this year.  All will be online.


  • The first training will be regional:  Focused on Climate Action in the United States.  It will run from Thursday, April 22 (Earth Day!) through Sunday, May 2.*


  • The second training (July 10-18, 2021) will also be regional:  Focusing on Climate Solutions throughout Latin America (in Spanish).   


  • The third and final training for 2021 will be a Global Training.  A date has not yet been set, but it will be this Fall, probably in October, but not overlapping with this year’s COP.

Training will require a minimum of 14 hours to complete, but most training can be done at the trainee’s convenience over the span of two weeks.  Trainees must be at least 13 years of age and commit to completing all the training components.  Trainees between the ages of 13-18 require permission from a parent or legal guardian. 

Individuals who are already trained Climate Reality Leaders are welcome to register; however, we do encourage those who have trained in the past to apply to serve as mentors.

* The Climate Reality Leadership Corps Virtual US Training will feature four days of two-hour live broadcasts (on Sat 4/24, Sun 4/25, Sat 5/1 and Sun 5/2), with additional on-demand viewing and interactive sessions available between April 22 and May 2.  (See the first link, above, for full details on the schedule.)

During the training, you’ll join broadcast sessions with some of the world’s leading climate experts and activists – led by former Vice President Al Gore – along with breakout sessions designed to dive deeper into the most important climate topics of today. Sessions will focus on three key themes in the fight for an equitable and sustainable future:


  • Stopping fossil fuel expansion

  • Accelerating just climate solutions

  • Driving federal climate action in the US


Just as important, the Virtual US Training offers the chance to connect with other activists just like you and join a global network of world changers making a real difference for the planet when it matters.

There is no cost to attend and our flexible online format is designed to work with your schedule. This is our time and your year to make a difference.

The Climate Reality Leadership Corps Virtual US Training is designed for US residents with content specific to US climate activism and sessions timed around US working hours.
