NEW! NNOCCI Trainer Course
The National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation (NNOCCI) is launching its first-ever Trainer Course this fall! The NNOCCI Trainer Course will build participants' confidence and competence in facilitating climate change programs at their organization and within their community. Via a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) grant, this five month (October 2022 to February 2023) comprehensive course will cover tested strategies for constructive climate communication, best practices for training others in those strategies, and the role of DEI and environmental justice in this work. The course will consist of three phases of virtual and in-person experiences with the final phase taking place in-person at the Busch Gardens, Tampa.
During this application cycle, we are interested in recruiting Southeast United States-based climate communicators, so if you know agencies or partners that would be interested, please share the application and companion FAQs with them!
