Net Impact Climate Ambassadors

Join the 8 week training and learn how to model climate resilience scenarios, build relationships with climate advocates, and get skilled up to lead workshops in your community.

Presented in partnership with Climate Interactive

Net Impact Climate Ambassadors will learn to use data and Climate Interactive’s tools to model scenarios that mitigate the worst impacts of climate change. Ambassadors have a 3 part experience: learning cutting edge climate data and tools, building relationships with climate-concerned Net Impact members from around the world, and amplifying impact by leading presentations to communities and climate decision makers worldwide. 

First, Ambassadors complete an 8 week online course through Climate Interactive’s virtual training platform. Ambassadors will be trained on how to effectively communicate the climate crisis, understand the system dynamics of climate change, become familiar with the highest-leverage climate solutions, and learn how to facilitate educational workshops using the En-ROADS simulator. During the 8-week online program, Net Impact will offer weekly Zoom calls that will supplement the course materials, create space for shared knowledge and build the participant’s community of passionate climate activists. Finally, after completing the 8 week course through Net Impact, participants will host two workshops with their community in order to become certified as a Climate Interactive Ambassador by the summer of 2022. Select Climate Ambassadors may be invited to special events and speaking opportunities with Net Impact.
