As 24 Hours of Reality: #TruthIntoAction comes to a close, I want to express my deepest thanks to the more than 1,700 @climatereality leaders around the world who helped us spread the hopeful message of climate solutions far and wide. Over the last several years, the power of grassroots organizing has inspired millions to rise up and demand climate action from our leaders. Because of the hard work of Climate Reality Leaders, the global movement for solutions only continues to grow. Join us, and apply to be a Climate Reality Leader at https://climaterealityproject.org/training
Over the next 24 hours, more than 1,700 grassroots activists around the world will bring the hopeful message about climate solutions to their communities for 24 Hours of Reality: #TruthIntoAction, a global day of climate action and education. @climatereality has always believed in the power of education and the importance of engaging directly with our friends, families, and neighbors to build a global coalition for climate action. That’s why I’m addressing my own community of Nashville, Tennessee at @vanderbiltu. I am honored to have the opportunity to share how we can work together to create a better future for ourselves, our children, and our grandchildren.
This year we’re putting @climatereality’s 24 Hours of Reality: Truth In Action in the hands of our dedicated network of climate activists around the world. November 20-21, Climate Reality leaders are going out into their communities to turn #TruthIntoAction as they share the urgency of the climate crisis with their friends, neighbors, and colleagues, and advocate for the solutions to help solve it.

Last week I was honored to host 450 farmers, soil scientists, policymakers, researchers, and other climate and agriculture experts to my family farm, @caneyforkfarms, to share ideas and learn from one another. We talked about the farmer-led regenerative agriculture movement as a solution to the worsening climate crisis. By cultivating the land in such a way that restores soil health and recarbonizes it, thereby removing some of the excess carbon from the atmosphere, we can reduce the effects of the climate crisis, and improve crop yields, food quality and community health. I’m excited to keep this dialogue going!
Domo arigato to the new @ClimateReality leaders in Japan! I leave here feeling inspired that these change makers will lead Japan’s transition to clean energy. The climate crisis is threatening this remarkable country, but the solutions are here to be seized upon. #LeadonClimate
I join @climatereality members around the world to stand with the global youth movement holding our leaders accountable to solve the climate crisis. Made evident by today’s #ClimateStrike, we're not powerless. We have the ability to join together and win this. Keep pushing forward! #FridaysForFuture
I’m proud to support @ClimateReality leader @jamie_s_margolin, along with @gretathunberg & Vic Barret speaking truth to power to Congress this week. This generation and its leaders are rightly & justly demanding a better future. #LeadOnClimate
For 15 years now, under the leadership of Jeff Skoll, @Participant has utilized art & activism to revolutionize how we speak about & understand the human experience. I'm so proud to be a part of their story. Here's to the next chapter! #ParticipantsWanted
Each year, I personally train thousands of activists to go out into their communities and give presentations about the climate crisis and how we can solve it. Here’s a powerful illustration of what that looks like. @ClimateReality leaders Rosa Anders & Milan van der Meulen just gave a presentation to 20,000 Sziget Festival goers in Hungary! I’m continually amazed and heartened by the grassroots work these activists are doing all around the world.
#TBT to our unforgettable @climatereality training in the Twin Cities last week! I’m excited to see how this group uses the skills they gained at the training back in their communities to #LeadOnClimate. My thanks to Tom Friedman, Mayors Jacob Frey and Melvin Carter, and all the speakers who shared their ideas and inspired us to action.
