About Inconvenient Youth - For Educators

"Inconvenient Youth is a community of teenagers taking action to address the climate crisis."

At Inconvenient Youth, our goal is to empower young people to become environmental leaders. The climate crisis is one of the most pressing issues of our time, and we believe that teens can make a real and meaningful difference now. By providing an informational resource, a supportive community, and a venue to share ideas and take part in group action, we are creating a place for teens to explore their passions and take action for a cause inspires them.

Looking for more ways to be involved? Encourage your students to be inconvenient! Inconvenient Youth encourages collaboration with classrooms and schools through teachers and service learning opportunities. School green clubs or environmental clubs are a great way for teenagers to take action in their local community and usually require a faculty adviser. For more ideas on how you can get involved, read our Educators Handbook.

The Climate Project

Inconvenient Youth is an initiative of The Climate Project (TCP). The Climate Project, Al Gore's climate change leadership program, is a non-profit organization founded in June 2006. 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 has more than 3,000 diverse and dedicated volunteers internationally. These volunteers are known as TCP Presenters and have been personally trained by Mr. Gore to deliver an updated version of the slide show featured in the Academy Award-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth. TCP Presenters have delivered 70,000 presentations and have reached a combined global audience of more than 7.3 million. Presentations are customized and frequently revised to include the latest climate science and can be requested free of charge by any size group or organization. TCP's global headquarters is located in Nashville, Tennessee.
