There’s still time to apply for August’s Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Los Angeles.

Our Impact Comms Lead, Carlotta De Toni, joined the Berlin cohort taking the training last month, which was led by Al Gore, and she shared her thoughts on the experience in an online article published this week.

Carlotta also interviewed Ken Berlin Chairman and CEO of the Climate Reality Project in Germany. One of the questions asked was whether enough is being said about the food production industry and its impact on climate change.

 

“We could say more about the food production industry, I think people are beginning to pay more attention to it as it happens,” Ken said. “There are two aspects to it: one is how agriculture is run, how you farm, how you raise cows and all the rest of that. There are already ways to do this that really minimise or reduce greenhouse gas emissions. So that’s important on the one hand. On the other hand, we don’t tell people they can’t eat meat or anything, but we do recommend that people eat less meat, that everybody does their part by reducing consumption in a way that reduces greenhouse gas emissions.”

 

The deadline for those who want to apply to take part in LA from 28-30 August has been extended until 18 July.
