Become a Climate Change Ambassador

Start your journey today to become a GBRI CERTIFIED Climate Change Ambassador and share your digital badge with your professional network.

From environmental to social impacts, climate change is changing more than the global temperature.  Not only does climate change impact daily life, but it’s also driving us apart. From individual health to ecological balance, understanding climate change in all aspects is the first step in being part of the solution. GBRI is excited to announce its first sustainability badge with 3 levels that enable you to progress steadily, become an expert and display your accomplishments as you progress on your sustainability path.

Whether you are just getting started in learning more about climate change or a champion who believes in it and wants to make a difference, GBRI’s Climate Change Ambassador Program is a collection of courses, articles, and meaningful exercises that enable you to learn more about climate change, progress steadily, and become an Ambassador for our planet. 

The self-paced program includes 3 levels. Each level is a collection of climate change courses, articles, and exercises. Participants will earn points and a certificate of completion for each individual action, such as completion of a course, taking a quiz, or completing an exercise. Upon completion of all required steps under a level, participants will earn a climate change badge (Warrior, Champion, or Ambassador).
