Advocacy Training for Climate Action

Interested in taking action on climate change but not sure where to start? Already involved in climate advocacy and looking to build more skills and community?

Whether you’re new to advocacy or an experienced advocate, we invite you to join the workshop to learn tangible skills, network with other students, and build connections to local and national advocacy organizations.

Sessions address how to:

  • Communicate your message in ways that motivate action
  • Employ social media and traditional media as effective advocacy tools
  • Build power through collective action by centering social justice in advocacy
  • Contact your legislator, write a public comment letter, and other individual advocacy actions
  • Translate your role as a scientist or other scholar into effective advocacy


  • Mariya Taher, Topos Partnerships
  • Taylor Mayes & John Humphries, Connecticut Roundtable on Climate and Jobs
  • Paulina Muratore & Dan Gatti, The Union of Concerned Scientists
  • Dwayne David Paul & Rachel Scott, Collaborative Center for Justice
