The purpose of this free, online, and interactive workshop is for participants to learn how to effectively advocate for climate change action on the federal level. The workshop includes modules covering an overview of climate change science, some of its impacts on society and the environment, as well as mitigation, adaptation, and resiliency strategies. Importantly, participants will learn about different ways to communicate about climate change with various audiences, from those who are champions of climate change action to those who are less receptive to climate change, while always moving toward a shared common goal.
