Climate Outreach in Miami - What that looks like at Ground Zero

Abstract: There are significant infrastructure, biodiversity, and vulnerable populations at risk from climate disruptions in SE Florida. The CLEO Institute is the only non-profit exclusively invested in climate outreach and education in the region, and we will share our strategy, successes, frustrations and ongoing efforts to engage diverse audiences. Our partnerships keep growing, as CLEO's simultaneous top-down/bottom-up approach to climate outreach helps broaden the ranks of climate engaged leaders at the city, county, school, community, and business levels. We will share efforts such as our Mayors Roundtable discussions, the CLEO Teachers Network, Community Town Halls, the GenCLEO movement, Climate 101 Trainings, Municipal Partnerships, Climate Justice advocacy, and the building of a Speakers Network. See and the pdf reports attached.
