    CCL Training: Strategies For Attending Candidate Events

    CCL wants all candidates to move climate to the top of their policy agenda so (1) plan for lots of folks to attend campaign events this summer, (2) prepare for the events by crafting effective questions to ask, and (3) get to know and educate candidates on CCL, whether they are doing campaign events or not.  Join this training to walk through CCL's main goals heading into the election season picking up steam and how we can engage with candidates and members of Congress ahead of the election.

Effective training in a polarized world

Very balanced and useful training for engaging more in climate action

Great training, volume could do with adjusting

The training is great, and if more people took it, we would have a lot more accomplished on climate. I wish they would increase the volume a bit to bring it on par with other podcasts.
