In 2006, Nobel Laureate and former US Vice President Al Gore got the world talking about climate change with the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth.
Now led by former US Vice President Al Gore and CEO and President Ken Berlin, The Climate Reality Project works to pull on the levers of power by training and empowering everyday people.
The Earth is facing a climate crisis, driven by fossil fuels. At Climate Reality, we’re here to make urgent action a necessity: in politics, in business, in every aspect of our lives. Everywhere!
Urgent action to cut greenhouse gas emissions and speed a just transition to clean energy worldwide.
Urgent action to make world leaders commit to stopping global warming through the Paris Agreement.
Urgent action to end the pollution poisoning frontline communities and racist policies deepening inequality planet-wide.
Through our trainings, campaigns, and partnerships, we give people the tools, know-how, and network to take on and win climate and justice battles with local, national, and global consequences.
The result is over 31,000 Climate Reality Leader activists mobilizing communities in 170 countries. Branches in 10 critical nations and regions around the Earth and 140 activist chapters (and growing) pushing for practical clean energy policies across the United States.
Together, they add up to a powerful movement growing by the day.
One by the people. Of the people. For the planet.
our mission is to catalyze a global solution to the climate crisis by making urgent action a necessity across every sector of society.
The Climate Reality Project stands in solidarity with social, racial & economic justice
We are committed to showing up and standing with all people who experience social, economic, environmental or racial injustice of any kind. Our movements are inextricably linked, and our mission to build an equitable and inclusive climate movement is only possible if we continue to fight for the health, safety, opportunity, and basic human rights of all people.
As an organization fighting for climate justice, we have a responsibility to speak out against systemic racism and work with our partners to help dismantle systems of social and racial supremacy that perpetuate violence and harm the environment and the people, of all races and of all social and economic levels. There can be no climate justice without racial justice, without economic justice, and without environmental justice.
DIVERSITY, EQUITY & INCLUSION
While the climate crisis manifests on a global scale, we acknowledge that indigenous peoples, low-income families, people of color, and other historically marginalized groups represent frontline communities who experience harmful climate impacts first and worst.
To live our values of a truly sustainable future for all, we must commit to understanding and undoing the historic injustices which contribute to this reality and, in our solutions, address systemic inequities.
