Let’s Talk Climate: Award Winning Community Climate Leaders

Over the next few months, we’ll be featuring the fantastic work of climate leaders who were finalists in this year’s American Climate Leadership Awards (ACLA). In this first volume, we’ll hear from Joshua Dedmond (Program Director at Cooperation Jackson) and Doug Siglin (Policy Advisor with the Chesapeake Climate Action Network). Find out what they have done to accelerate action on climate change while prioritizing justice, equity, diversity and inclusion.

You’re sure to be inspired by their work and come away with concrete actions you can take in your community. Replication guides for their (and the other 8 finalists’) activities are available here.



In case you missed it, re-watch the awards ceremony to find out which of the finalists ultimately won the grand prize!
