Celebrating 10 Years Of The Climate Reality Leadership Corps

African Climate Leaders are invited to share short video clips illustrating their work to celebrate the 10-year anniversary of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps and get the chance to talk directly with Vice President Al Gore.

 

It’s been 10 years since the Climate Reality Leadership Corps began – since former US Vice President Al Gore first brought together a group of 50 people to a small training in Nashville, Tennessee, and kicked off what would become a worldwide movement for climate change solutions.

Since 2006 – the same year An Inconvenient Truth was released – we’ve seen some amazing progress on the most important issue of our time.

It’s been 10 years of hard work and global action by the Climate Reality Leadership Corps, a group made up of scientists, activists, community leaders, teachers, fundraisers, business owners, journalists, students, and thousands of other people who are committed to making the world a better place for future generations.

It’s been 10 years of presentations, community outreach, public awareness, media appearances, letters to the editor, marches, petitions, and thousands of other actions that created real change on both local and global scales.

All of these efforts came together last year when 195 countries and governments committed to working together to reduce emissions planet-wide as part of the Paris Agreement. Now we plan to spend the coming years pushing to strengthen and implement those commitments so we can make the promise of Paris a reality.

In honor of 10 amazing years of climate action, the Climate Reality Project is creating a compilation of short video clips that celebrates the important work of Climate Reality Leaders and inspires others to take action.

 

All we need are plenty of short clips of African Climate Reality Leaders like you in action!

Send a short video clip (two minutes or less) by 31 August 2016 to the Climate Reality Project.

The clip could be from an already existing video or a new one. You can use a video camera, or just use your phone. The important thing is that the video shows you taking climate action!

Out of all the submissions, the Climate Reality Leadership Corps team will pick five favorites and those five Climate Reality Leaders will have the opportunity to speak directly with Vice President Gore during a short one-on-one video call over Skype (or other video calling software).

Check on Reality Hub the guidelines and instructions for participating in the 10-Year Anniversary Video Project contest.
