“TCP Presenters are in a direct dialogue with their communities about the climate crisis. They fully understand
that people, regardless of their politics or profession, want global leaders to take strong action to avoid
catastrophic climate change,” Mr Gore said.
Diplomats from 193 nations are in attendance at the UN climate change talks including more than 100 volunteers

TCP's mission is to educate the public about the harmful effects of climate change and to work toward solutions at
a grassroots level worldwide. TCP’s community of more than 3,000 presenters worldwide ha
