CCL also offers live training sessions on a variety of topics every week. View the Training Events Calendar for a full list.

Science of Climate Change

  Beginner This training is intended for volunteers who are seeking a basic understanding of this topic.
|
  Interactive Training content presented in a more interactive format with integrated images, audio, video and learner-centric activities.

This training addresses the sources and concentrations of greenhouse gases, as well as the basic scientific concepts behind climate change. It highlights the importance behind the scientific method and the peer review process, and addresses best practices in communicating this research with other community members.

Climate and Weather

  Intermediate This training is created for volunteers who already have a grasp of the basics and are looking to deepen their understanding on a more focused topic.
|
  Traditional Training content presented in a tab format with more straightforward access to text, webinar, and audio recordings.

CCL & The IPCC 1.5 Degrees Special Report

  Intermediate This training is created for volunteers who already have a grasp of the basics and are looking to deepen their understanding on a more focused topic.
|
  Traditional Training content presented in a tab format with more straightforward access to text, webinar, and audio recordings.

This training reviews the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report “Global Warming of 1.5°C"" to examine why it was written, what it tells us that’s new, and how it informs CCL’s work.

Weather Attribution Science

  Advanced This training topic is more advanced and intended to provide complex information and resources for volunteers looking for an in-depth explanation.
|
  Traditional Training content presented in a tab format with more straightforward access to text, webinar, and audio recordings.

Attribution science is the process of quantifying the contribution of global warming to extreme weather and other events. This training discusses the background of attribution science, the process for connecting climate change with extreme weather events, and how we as CCL volunteers can effectively communicate its research and findings.
