Webinars

One of Our Climate's top priorities is training our student Fellows to be effective policy advocates and fierce organizers. We provide in-house training and orientation to get these students off the ground and into the field. We realize, however, that young people have so much to learn. We’re in the process of developing a webinar series that will give students the best fellowship experience they can possibly have. Our hope is that these webinars will help students achieve the following:

  • Learn to foster and include multiple perspectives from the environmental and social justice community in our work
  • Build a stronger and more diverse coalition of leaders through mutually educational and supportive arrangement needed to pass fair and effective climate policy
  • Become effective policy advocates through high-level campus and community organizing and lobby opportunities

Everyone has something worthwhile sharing. If you’d like to give a webinar presentation to our students, e-mail our Program Director at cassidy@ourclimate.us
