The presentation is free and open to the public.The Climate Project (TCP) is a non-profit organization consisting of 3,125 volunteers worldwide, a number of whom have been personally trained by Nobel Laureate and former U.S. Vice President Al Gore to educate the public about climate change awareness. Volunteer presenters span the globe, from countries including the United States, Australia, Canada, India, Spain, the UK and Indonesia.

The presentation, given by Claude Ouimet, senior vice president and general manager of InterfaceFLOR, will feature a version of the slide show featured in the Academy Award-winning film An Inconvenient Truth.

TCP’s mission to combat the climate crisis has reached a combined audience of more than five million worldwide, with plans to develop offices in Israel, China, Eastern Europe, Mexico and Latin America. The group hopes that by raising awareness and informing the public about potential solutions to solve the climate crisis, that humanity, together, can preserve the climate balance on which we all depend.
