Now in their sixth year, these intensive three-day training sessions will be led in part by Al Gore and will bring together an All Star roster of some of the world's leading climate scientists, media and communications experts, and practitioners to share the latest science of climate change, best practices in public speaking and social media, leadership skills, and communication strategies.
