The CLEO Institute drives climate action through education and engagement. We believe an informed and engaged public (from the top down and bottom up) is essential if we are to slow global warming and climate disruptions. Climate scientists have affirmed that we are creating a hostile world where humanity and biodiversity, as we know them, cannot thrive. There is no time to waste, and the sense of urgency to fix the problem is palpable. And, while climate change is a complex issue, we at The CLEO Institute know first hand that climate science can be simplified for a lay public in novel ways. We partner with scientists, elected officials, business and community members to offer Climate 101 workshops, forums, panels, film screenings, and roundtable discussions. CLEO's Teachers Network, Youth Task Force, Mayors Roundtables, Leadership Circle, Municipal and County Partnerships, Leadership Circle, and Speakers Network are all thriving. And our efforts are paying off as leaders are realizing that more and more of us (a) understand climate science, seriousness and solutions; and (b) expect them to act in the public’s interest and keep us out of harm’s way. We still have a great deal of work to do, and we thank you for your support. Based in Miami, FL, our mission is to promote an informed and engaged public that supports climate action locally, regionally, nationally, and globally.
