Help The CLEO Institute Change the Forecast! Invest in a More Climate Resilient Florida!


The CLEO Institute, founded in 2010, is the only women-led nonprofit, nonpartisan statewide organization in Florida exclusively dedicated to climate education, advocacy, and engagement. CLEO provides critical education on the science, the urgency, and solutions of the climate crisis with a climate justice lens to empower people to join the movement. Building community resilience and adaptive capacity require an informed, engaged, and prepared public. Therefore, CLEO works with governmental, business, academic, and community leaders to advocate for long-term and inclusive solutions.

Programs include, but are not limited to:

CLEO Speakers Network: training people to become confident climate speakers

•Empowering Resilient Women: connecting the dots for women in underserved communities on how to be better prepared for extreme weather events, including food security.

•Climate Resilient Schools: working with high school students and teachers to bring climate, justice, and civic engagement into the curriculum

•GenCLEO Youth Network: supporting a network of young people who have successfully gotten eight municipalities to declare a climate emergency.

•Campaigns & Multimedia efforts: activating statewide campaigns like the Melting Florida statues to increase extreme heat awareness and our House on Fire podcast.Our programs and top-down, bottom-up approach is empowering Floridians to take action. 

This Give Miami Day, we invite you to be part of the movement to "Change the Forecast" with The CLEO Institute.

Every contribution, whether big or small, is a step towards creating a more resilient, sustainable, and equitable world.
