Summer Training at the Climate Advocacy Institute
Wondering what to do this June? Hoping to understand more about climate change and learn grassroots organizing skills from experts? We’ve got your ticket!
Join us at this year’s Climate Advocacy Institute, sponsored by Bloomfield College, the International Debate Education Association and 350.org. The Climate Advocacy Institute will be held in Decemco, Turkey, on the Aegean coast, and will run for nearly three weeks, from June 28 – July 18, 2009.
The Institute will have three tracks to choose from:
Debate and Argumentation
Journalism and New Media, and
Performance and Art Advocacy
In addition, all participants will take part in a series of climate organizing workshops run by 350.org and our international team of pro-youth activists and experts.
If you’re thinking the Climate Advocacy Institute might be too intensive for you, have no fear! This incredible opportunity is jam-packed with exciting extra-curricular trips to major historic sites, sports games and lots of fun after-hours activities.
You’ll meet and get to hang out with dozens of young climate activists, and become part of the growing network of 350.org youth activists worldwide.
You can even get University credit for taking part, and there are limited scholarships available. There are only 100 spots available, and the deadline to apply is April 8, so there’s no time to lose.
APPLY NOW, and apply to learn about climate science and policy, and get in-depth, hands-on organizing training to turn that knowledge into action!
