Finding Common Ground:
How to be a climate advocate
In 2023, advocating for the outdoors is vital to ensure a healthy future for our people and planet, not to mention to preserve our favorite outdoor spaces we love to play on. But how do you get started along your climate advocacy journey? That’s where POW steps in. We’ve tapped into the outdoor industry’s most engaged climate advocates to keep you informed and elevate your confidence to start your own advocacy journey.
During this online educational series you’ll hear in-depth advice, analysis, and tales from the advocacy trail with POW Alliance members like Graham Zimmerman, Michelle Parker, Jeremy Jones, Peyton Thomas, Dakota Jones and more. Our Alliance members are on the front lines of climate change, bearing witness to the environmental changes in real-time and working tirelessly to advocate for the outdoors with lawmakers in D.C. and in their local communities.
