ABOUT CLIMATE REALITY EUROPE
Climate Reality Europe is one of the eleven branches of the US-based The Climate Reality Project. The European branch works independently in the region yet collaboratively with other branches and with the US-based organization to mobilize activists and drive real climate solutions around the world.
Climate Reality Europe is hosted as a program of Greenpeace CEE in Vienna, Austria.
The European Branch engages with over 3800 volunteers (members of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps). Volunteers are the main assets of the Branch arriving from all European countries, with various backgrounds, committed to solve the climate crisis.
While supporting relevant initiatives of volunteers the Branch also develops programs to catalyze action in response to the climate crisis by means of presentations, personal outreach, dynamic digital initiatives and inspirational events - built on the active collaboration with the volunteers. Programs cover areas like empowering communities, businesses, just transition, climate justice or supporting joint climate actions with European partners. Our goal is to influence the political narrative in order to make the Paris Agreement a reality.
