Spring 2021 Climate Advocacy Methods Program


To solve the climate crisis, Citizens’ Climate Lobby empowers people to use the tools of democracy to build political will for climate solutions in Congress. This 15-week Climate Advocacy Methods Program is for anyone interested in learning and applying CCL’s methods for climate action. Participants who successfully complete the program by April 15 will receive CCL’s Certificate of Completion, and if they are enrolled at a school in the Fall, can interview to join CCL's Campus Leaders Program to start a climate campaign or CCL chapter at their school. In addition, participants receive information about internships, events, actions, and other opportunities with CCL or partner organizations. Throughout the program, participants will:


  1. Attend at least nine sessions of CCL’s Core Volunteer Trainings and post in the discussion forum reflections inspired by that week’s training.
  2. Attend CCL’s (virtual) Conference.
  3. Write and submit a letter-to-the-editor or op-ed to your preferred media outlet.

  4. Participants have the option to:


  5. Join their local CCL chapter.
  6. Participate in a lobby meeting with the office of a member of Congress.
  7. Join a call with a regional fellow or student engagement coordinator to discuss further involvement.

Anyone is welcome to join regardless of age or student status. No application or prerequisites are necessary and there is no cost. The program takes about two hours a week and academic credit is possible through arrangement with the student's academic institution.
