Hundreds of Grass-Roots Activists and Scientific Leaders Meet in Nashville for Al Gore's North American Summit

Nashville, Tennessee, (PRWEB) May 14, 2009 -- The Climate Project (TCP), an international non-profit founded by former Vice President Al Gore with a mission to increase public awareness of the climate crisis at a grassroots level worldwide, is opening its North American Summit in Nashville today.

During the three day event, Gore will address more than 500 attendees as well as conduct a three hour training workshop. Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chairman of the Nobel Prize-winning Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will also be present. Award-winning scientist, environmentalist and journalist Dr. David Suzuki will join Gore and Pachauri, establishing the first time in history that three of the most recognized names in climate change have ever appeared together.

The Summit marks the beginning of TCP's "Phase Two," signaling the transition from its original mission of education and increasing public awareness of the climate crisis to its expanded objective of "advocacy and activism." Now, TCP volunteers, while continuing their education role, will also seek to persuade people to encourage elected officials and community leaders to urgently address climate change issues.

To help foster this move, Steve Hildebrand, Democratic political strategist and former deputy national campaign director for Barack Obama, will speak to attendees as well as Steve Bouchard, veteran political campaign strategist and Repower America Campaign Manager, about the national campaign to enact bold policies to improve climate change. Both are now working with Maggie Fox, CEO of The Alliance for Climate Protection, who is also addressing the conference.

The shift from public education to activism is inspired in part by the upcoming Copenhagen Tre
