Laura's Sacks Reflects on Her Recent Climate Reality Leadership Training 


Laura Sacks heads up the Nelson – West Kootenay chapter of Citizens’ Climate Lobby and is a new Climate Reality Leader.  She was selected as one of 35 Canadians, joining 800 people from 26 countries for training in Bellevue, Washington. This three-day training at the end of June focused on the latest climate science, communication techniques, and ways to effectively collaborate with others to address the climate crisis.
'Inconvenient Sequel' prompts pinky promise

Cathy Orlando, director of CCL Canada, and her family recently attended a special screening of Al Gore’s new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.” Cathy’s 10-year-old daughter Sophia presented Mr. Gore with a drawing and a handmade card, which read “Thank you, Mr. Gore, for helping make my life convenient. Love, Sophia."
Also in attendance was the Honourable Catherine McKenna, Canada’s Minister of Environment and Climate Change—equivalent to the U.S. EPA director. She shared a pinky promise with Sophia to tackle climate change and encourage everyone to do their part. Their special moment was captured on camera by Sophia’s dad. CCL Canada tweeted the photo and, later, Minister McKenna responded with her own tweet!

Thank you, everyone, for retweeting. Minister McKenna is now doubling down on her commitment for a national carbon price by 2018!

“An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power” opens in select theaters July 28 and nationwide on August 4.
Read Cathy’s take on the film in her post on CCL’s blog.
Climate Reality's Interview with CCL Canada's National Director

In July, Climate Reality Canada published an interview with Cathy. Their conversation explored the role of family, mental health, and hope in climate related work. Cathy recommends leaders find ways of connecting regularly to their "tribe" of climate activists because we need to for our own health. Thus consider joining your climate tribe at CCL Canada's national conference (see next item).

Since May, CCL Canada's conference team of Marlo, Yannick, Laura, Cathy L. and Cathy O. have been diligently chipping away at all the little details for Canada's National Conference. Pretty soon they will have some significant announcements to make (these things take a lot of work and communication). Early bird registration (before Labour Day) for the four-day conference and lobbying days is $79 and it includes light refreshments on the Saturday and Sunday, a reception on the Monday and some CCL swag. After Labour Day registration will be $100.

Find out more about the conference here.

Karelo is handling the registrations again. Billing on your credit card will show up as Karelo not Citizens’ Climate Lobby. Register online at Karelo here.
