Founded in 2010, The CLEO Institute is the only women-led nonprofit, nonpartisan organization in Florida exclusively dedicated to climate education, advocacy, and engagement. The devastating hurricanes, the increased flooding, and rising temperatures we regularly witness in Florida underscore the importance of CLEO’s work.
Building community resilience and adaptive capacity require an informed, engaged, and prepared public. We work with government, business, academic, and community leaders to advocate for long-term equitable solutions. CLEO’s top-down, bottom-up approach is helping Florida, the most vulnerable state to climate impacts, become more resilient by empowering Floridians to take climate action.
OUR MISSION: To educate and empower communities to demand climate action, ensuring a safe, just, and healthy environment for all.
OUR VISION: A world in which all people, governments, and organizations are informed, engaged, and taking action on critical climate issues.
