MSSI hosts The Climate Reality Project

MSSI is excited to announce our new partnership with international non-profit, The Climate Reality Project, which will see the Institute as the Australian hosting organisation. Under the leadership of Professor Don Henry, Linh Do has joined as Project Manager.

Climate Reality’s mission is to catalyse a global solution to the climate crisis by undertaking science communication and translation activities that enable citizens at every level of society to become leaders of change. Over the last decade, following the release of Al Gore’s documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, Climate Reality has been a pioneer in building a diverse set of voices on climate change. Internationally, over 10,000 individuals have been trained to better communicate and engage on this pressing issue.

In 2015, through the Paris Agreement, the world committed to cutting greenhouse gas emissions and working towards a safe and sustainable future. Climate Reality is uniting millions of people from all corners of the globe and all walks of life to see that the commitment to limit the global temperature rise to less than 1.5 degrees Celsius is not only fulfilled but strengthened.

These efforts traverse both the global and the local, transcending the political and engaging broadly throughout the community. The Project works across all sectors of society, from farmers and emergency responders to educators and the business sector. The Climate Reality Project is helping our society strive together to implement solutions to climate change, in Australia and the broader Asia-Pacific region,
