Your Voice Matters: Become a Path to Positive Ambassador

Americans are growing more concerned about climate change. As they experience impacts to their health, livelihoods, and communities, they are increasingly looking for guidance on solutions from leaders in their daily lives — community leaders like you. The Path to Positive Ambassador training will empower and equip you to inspire your community, colleagues, the public, and policymakers to take action on climate change that makes a difference.

Training Overview

In this free, four hour training you will learn the links between climate, people and our communities, the spectrum of solutions, speaking effectively on the topic, and opportunities to act and advocate. This training will equip civic leaders and community advocates with knowledge, hands-on experience, and resources to speak and act confidently on climate change and solutions. The training, along with the cohort of like-minded leaders, will enable ambassadors to inspire their communities, colleagues, the public, and policymakers to develop climate solutions that protect our families and communities now and ensure a prosperous, just, and secure future. 

The Path to Positive Communities Ambassador Training is available in-person, live online through Path to Positive partners, and now through a *NEW* online, on-demand learning management system!
