Featuring Alvidas Jasin, from “The Climate Change Project” Alvidas spends some of his spare time supporting environmental efforts.

With this training, Alvidas is now part of The Climate Project, a select group of “global warming messengers” who are authorized and available to give a live version of Mr. Gore’s Oscar- and Nobel-Prize-winning documentary, “An Inconvenient Truth.” Alvidas has already given nearly 100 of these presentations to audiences across the country and has subsequently been invited back to Nashville to serve as a facilitator for additional training sessions.
