A new Climate Stewards Volunteer program at Cornell Cooperative Extension Tompkins County (CCE-Tompkins) is now taking applications for its first 12-week training class this summer. Modeled on Extension’s successful Master Gardener and Master Composter volunteer programs, this effort will equip participants to take action to address climate change in their communities through educational outreach and volunteer-led climate smart projects.
The Summer 2021 Climate Steward Volunteer Training will be held weekly via Zoom on Wednesday evenings, 6:00-8:00pm, from June 9th to August 25th. In each of the first 10 weeks, trainees will cover a specific climate change topic, with additional outside readings, videos and group activities designed to develop skills needed to lead and educate their communities in climate science, adaption, and mitigation. Throughout the course, trainees will design and work toward an individual or group community action project that they will present and discuss in the final two class sessions. This program’s curriculum was developed by Cornell University in partnership with CCE-Tompkins.
Volunteer applications can be found online at http://ccetompkins.org/climate-stewards and are due by Friday, May 28th. NO TRAINING DEPOSIT - FEE WAIVED! For more information on the program, please contact Rachel Zevin, Climate Smart Communities and Climate Stewards Coordinator at CCE-Tompkins, at email@example.com or (607) 272-2292.
