Climate Chaplain Training
and Certification Program
There are four Areas of Excellence that need to be mastered in order to become an effective Climate Chaplain. The Humanist Chaplaincy will provide certification to candidates who demonstrate excellence in all four areas. The four Areas of Excellence are 1) Educating about Climate Justice; 2) Supporting climate activists on the front line; 3) Providing emotional and spiritual support to people and communities most affected by climate change, especially black, brown, poor, and indigenous peoples, and 4) Proposing and implementing a Demonstration Project that shows integration of skills and a plan for continuous involvement in the climate change movement going forward.
Area of Excellence:
Becoming a Climate Change Educator
Being able to present The Climate Reality Project's Truth in 10 slide show to one's own faith group, and other groups as required, is central to the Climate Chaplain program. And the good news is that it is very easy. Vice President Al Gore's slides are captivating, and learning the material is straightforward. Begin by going to the Truth in 10 website (click button below) and watching how Al Gore gives this presentation. Then download the slides, and practice personalizing the presentation. One great way to do that is to tell your own climate story as a part of the show. Have a look HERE and see how our Executive Director does that.
