Caroline Lewis

Caroline Lewis wants the world to wake up to the climate crisis.  Like the Irish author, William Butler Yeats, Lewis believes that education is less about FILLING PAILS and more about LIGHTING FIRES in people. Her strategy, then, is to light fires. Lewis founded the CLEO Institute in 2010 to help mobilize the masses in support of climate action. Recognizing the urgency of the climate data, Caroline shaped CLEO’s initiatives to build climate literacy and informed advocacy, top down and bottom up, simultaneously. Ultimately, the goal is to spur our economic and political engines to grasp the seriousness of the issue, and act with urgency.
