Al Gore trains Andrew Kinnear in Montreal

The Climate Project and Al Gore trained Andrew Kinnear to be a Presenter for The Climate Project

Toronto resident, Andrew Kinnear, recently completed The Climate Project training program led by Nobel Laureate Al Gore to spread the message about the challenges of and solutions to the climate crisis.

“Andrew is an outstanding example of the millions of Canadians who have been energized by the call to action on the climate crisis,” said Mr. Gore. “We are so pleased that he has made a serious commitment to this challenge by participating in The Climate Project – Canada’s training session in Montreal.”

As one of 275 Canadians trainees, Andrew will be spending the next year making presentations mainly in and around Toronto, discussing how individuals in their homes, businesses and communities can take the actions necessary to reduce their environmental impact and urge others to action.

Andrew was part of a select group of individuals chosen to receive this important training April 4-6 in Montreal. Each presenter took part in an intensive session about issues surrounding climate change, led by Mr. Gore and Dr. Andrew Weaver, who was the scientific advisor. In addition, each presenter received technical training to become experienced communicators of a version of Mr. Gore’s slide show, which became the basis of his best-selling book and Academy Award-winning documentary film, “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The inaugural training session of The Climate Project was held in Nashville, Tennessee, in September, 2006. Since then, 2250 people from all spectrums of their societies have attended 13 training sessions in 6 countries on four continents.
