Climate Stewards

Are you interested in helping your community adapt to our changing climate?  

Cornell is seeking Climate Steward volunteers to bring researched-based climate change solutions to their local community. Regional training for residents of Schuyler, Seneca and Cayuga Counties will begin in April. Climate Stewards must attend 12 training sessions (24 hours) and complete at least 40 hours of community volunteering on climate projects to be certified as a Climate Steward.

There will be nine virtual/online sessions and three in-person sessions in a central location. A virtual option for the in-person sessions will be available for those unable to attend for valid reasons (lack of transportation, emergency, etc.).
