A Chance to be a Climate Leader

I have been selected as one of the few Climate Leaders (as well as the only South African) for the Climate Reality Leadership Corps (see to attend training from the 30th of July to the 1st of August 2013 in Chicago, U.S.A.

What it is

The Climate Reality Leadership Corps is made up of Climate Leaders from around the world who educate people about climate change and how we can solve it in their communities. The Corps will be presented by Al Gore, former US vice-president and chairman of the Climate Reality Project, as well as top level scientists and other top-tier speakers. This will enable me to help create community projects as well as give talks at schools, colleges,and other community centres in South Africa and Africa to teach people about climate change and what they can do in their own personal lives to make changes and a difference. see


I am in need of funding to pay for my flights, accommodation, meals and so on; the training itself is free. This will enable me to go on this once in a lifetime training experience. The benefits are substantial for myself, for South Africa, and the continent of Africa and will open many doors and opportunities so that I can truly make a difference.
