The Climate Project Australia July 11, 2009 : 3:25 PM

I am in Australia to train 350people on my slide show. Participants in the training have come from throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The Climate Project (TCP) began in June 2006 as an effort to train 1,000 Americans about the climate crisis and what we can do to solve it. The first class of fifty presenters was trained in Nashville, TN, which is now the home of TCP’s international headquarters. Since then, TCP has established international branches in Australia, Canada, India, Spain, and the United Kingdom. And it also has an official presence in Mexico, Israel, Italy, Turkey, Indonesia and Singapore. I will also soon begin training sessions in China. TCP also works with a group called “Inconvenient Youth,” a network of teens committed to educating their peers and developing activities to engage young people.

TCP’s 2,600 presenters have reached a worldwide audience of more than 2 million people from all walks of life. You can learn more about their efforts at http://www.theclimateproject.org.
