Cornell Climate Stewards

Climate Stewards

Are you interested in helping your community adapt to our changing climate?  

Cornell is seeking Climate Steward volunteers to bring researched-based climate change solutions to their local community. Regional training for residents of Schoharie and Otsego Counties will begin in March. Climate Stewards must attend 12 training sessions (24 hours) and complete at least 40 hours of community volunteering on climate projects to be certified as a Climate Steward.

There will be 12 online sessions via Zoom Thursday evenings, beginning March 30th and ending on June 15th.  There is a $25 registration fee and scholarships are available.

CCESO’s Climate Steward trainees will also have opportunities to participate in in-person programs and activities to advance the goals of Climate Smart Communities in Schoharie and Otsego Counties. 

If you are interested in becoming a Climate Steward, you must first fill out an application.
