Community Leaders Climate Change Training

18 August 2022

We are inviting community leaders (e.g. faith groups, community centres, youth groups, cultural organisations, and educators) across all UK regions to join us in a FREE online training workshop.

The purpose of these 90-minute workshops is to support understanding of climate change and provide the knowledge and confidence to talk about climate change within local communities. The workshops will cover the science of climate change, including how changes in our polar regions impact the wider world and the actions that governments are taking to tackle the problem.

Community leaders will have the chance to learn and see examples of how climate change impacts their region. There will be an opportunity to share and discuss local experiences, learn from peers, and understand how best to communicate this critical topic more widely.

The Royal Meteorological Society will deliver the training in partnership with the British Antarctic Survey thanks to funding awarded by the Natural Environmental Research Council (part of UK Research & Innovation) through its Growing Roots public engagement funding opportunity.

Workshops will take place between October 2022 and February 2023 and have a capacity of 20 individuals per session (maximum of two attendees per organisation per workshop, or five across the whole series).



Some workshops will have an additional regional focus, as specified in the event titles below. Please select the most appropriate session for you.
