DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO BE A COOL PLANET CHAMPION?

WE NEED YOU!
Are you as frustrated as we are about the lack of action on climate change? Do you believe we could & should be doing more? Are you willing to do more?


If you’re passionate about climate change & want to spread the word in your local community & county, then the we want to hear from you! We are on a mission to recruit 50 climate change champions from every county across Ireland!


What’s in it for the champions? Each champion will receive 2 days free training on climate change & communication from international leaders in the field; Dr Cara Augustenborg & Raoul Empey - who bring their expertise on climate communication through Al Gore’s Climate Reality Project & Climate talk Ireland to the Cool Planet Champions programme.


What do champions have to do? The only requirement is that, once trained, Champions go out to their local communities & take climate action such as giving a presentation or talk, writing a blog, challenging their local politicians, speaking in a local school or talking to their local media.


When is the training? The training will take place 16th & 17th November in Powerscourt & applicants must be free to attend in Wicklow on those dates. This unique training will enable the Champions to engage, educate & inspire the public in their own county about how our changing climate directly impacts them & how they can make a real, practical difference.


When is the deadline? The deadline for submissions has been extended until 15th of Oct at 1pm. The new Cool Planet champions will be announced the following week. For further information, call 01-5180197 or email info@coolplanet.ie
