Cynthia Curtis, Wellesley resident, LEED certified home owner and internationally accomplished marketing and sustainability executive was recently invited to be a guest of The Climate Reality Project as both a presenter, and to become a Climate Reality Leader.
Climate Reality Leaders, trained by former Vice-President Al Gore, are the frontline agents for change, tackling the climate crisis head-on. They engage communities, including Wellesley and others around the world, with Acts of Leadership, building networks of truth, and inspiring solutions and action in their communities.
The Climate Reality Project, founded and chaired by former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore, is dedicated to unleashing a global cultural movement demanding action on the climate crisis.
Curtis, joined the stage with Anne Kelly from Ceres and Stephanie Berger from Bell Canada, to discuss the critical role of the private sector in driving systemic change and, more importantly, how to go about gaining that support economy-wide. They also highlighted the Ceres Climate Declaration, which continues to gain momentum and demonstrate the recognition that addressing climate change is smart business.
There are now nearly 6000 trained Climate Reality Leaders in more than 100 countries. There are now a handful in Wellesley educating communities about climate change.
