Climate Community Citizen of the Week – Alec Loorz

Congratulations to Alec Loorz this weeks Climate Community Citizen of the Week!


Given that this is Earth Week, we were hoping to find a particularly special young person to recognize – and add to our exciting list of amazing young people. Alec is just a remarkable young man. He is a High School student who upon seeing the Al Gore movie An Inconvenient Youth has literally devoted himself to getting the message out – to both young and old – about the seriousness of the climate crises. Alec is one of the "presenters" trained in Nashville by Vice President Gore who travels across our country giving talks and motivating people to make change happen. We could not think of a better person to be our Climate Community Citizen of the Week this Earth Day.

The following is background information on Alec…



Alec Loorz is a15 years old high school sophomore at El Camino High School in Ventura California founded Kids vs Global Warming when he was 12 years old after watching Al Gore's movie, "an inconvenient truth." Feeling the weight of the global situation and a sense that he could make a difference, Alec felt compelled to tell other kids about the problems we are facing. His message is deeply rooted in hope, encouraging kids to speak up and let their voices be heard on this issue.


Alec created a presentation made specifically for youth, full of videos, animation, easy-to-understand science, and compelling motivation for kids K-college ages. He gave over 30 presentations before being invited by Al Gore to be formally trained with the Climate Project in October of 2008. He is now their youngest trained presenter.

Alec is a designer and public speaker, always looking for new ways to inspire his peers. He's spoken to over 25,000 people so far and has bookings this year to reach over 100,000 through presentations, keynotes and panels with PhDs, elected officials and experts. His "iMatter" campaign, which began with a simple video, is now the basis for a million kid international march, slated for the next year, as well as a mobile phone tool meant to connect youth activists worldwide. The app, now available from the iTunes App store, will be updated within the next month for users to upload their projects and their observations about climate change impact onto a map, join other projects, and learn from other youth around the world.


Alec is also on the youth advisory board of several organizations, including TCP's Inconvenient Youth, Rainforest Action Network, Youth Sustaining the Earth, Ventura County School District, the Alliance for Climate Education, and the United Steelworkers Union.


Alec is a drummer, a photographer, a beginner surfer, a film maker, and a graphic designer. He is a mac-groupie and is constantly learning new magic tricks.



Once again – Congratulations Alec, keep up the great work!
