Climate Change 101 Training for City Employees

About the Training Program

Over time, CLEO has worked to refine and perfect a Climate Change 101 training program for municipal employees. The program provides all employees with baseline knowledge of climate science, seriousness, and solutions. Depending on the City's progress on climate resiliency planning and sustainability initiatives, CLEO works with the municipality to tailor the program to fit their needs. Lean more by reading reports from various city trainings below. 




Sessions, usually 2-3 hours, include:

(a) climate science, serious, and solutions, and 

(b) planning/sustainability module

The first section requires approximately two hours and includes interactive activities that help participants synthesize relevant information. The second session, as needed, caters to the city and can range from a sustainability module presented by city representatives to a faciliatated open strategy discussion. 



  • Provide employees with baseline knowledge of climate change issues
  • Promote awareness of the impacts of a changing climate on daily life at work and at home
  • Give context and/or build momentum for climate resiliency planning in the city
