The Climate Project Hosted Latin America Summit

Former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore recently trained 300 people from more the 21 Latin American countries including Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, Brazil, Trinidad, and Columbia, to become the first The Climate Project (TCP) presenters in the region.

The summit opened in Mexico City at the end of last month. Gore, along with other international experts, trained people from all walks of life to talk to their networks, peers, and communities about the climate crisis. This summit also marked the establishment of TCP Mexico in association with Pronatura, a non-profit organization headquartered in Mexico City.

According to the Climate Project, TCP Latin American presenters will become dynamic leaders in their region's ongoing conversations about land use, energy policy, and emissions measures. They will be active participants in solving the climate crisis not just in their home country, but worldwide.

TCP now has eight official branches: USA, Australia, Canada, Spain, the United Kingdom, India, Indonesia, and Mexico.

To help coordinate these efforts, TCP unveiled a new Web site where citizens around the world can learn how to get involved in their region. The site identifies where TCP has volunteers internationally and provides a way to unify the movement.

The Climate Project (TCP) is an international non-profit organization founded by former Vice President Al Gore. With its global headquarters in Nashville, Tenn., TCP's mission is to increase public awareness of the climate crisis in the United States and abroad. TCP consists of a professional staff and more than 3,000 volunteers worldwide who have personally been trained by Gore to present a version of the slide show featured in the Academy Award-winning film "An Inconvenient Truth."
