Are you like the majority of people who feel that as a result of climate change, humanity is doomed?
You feel angry, powerless, and — above all — afraid about what the future may hold.
Climate change matters so much…
It’s one of the few issues that has obvious potential to affect our world for generations to come.
So – what does science say?
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Sixth Assessment Report is, to our knowledge, the most authoritative and comprehensive source on climate change.
The report is clear: climate change will be hugely destructive. We’ll see floods, famines, fires, and droughts — and the world’s poorest people will be affected the most.
So yes, climate change is scary. And people are right to be angry that too little is being done.
But we’re not powerless.
And we’re far from doomed.
To successfully solve this challenge, we must work on all aspects of the climate equation—stopping sources and supporting carbon sinks as well as helping society achieve broader transformations.
We’ve brought together leaders in climate science to break down these complex topics into manageable pieces, so you can feel confident in understanding solutions and ways you can contribute!

"Coming into the Plato community gave me the accountability, made what I wanted to accomplish completely achievable, and also it was just completely fun."
Holy cow. Brandon is the real deal. I've taken many many courses on many platforms from others, and I will have to say, when I took his Podcast Course, it was one of the best courses, material, and set up I have ever seen. No fluff, no wasting your time, actionable reachable SMART steps necessary to help you learn the skill and succeed. We need more people with the skills Brandon has!
"I came to Brandon through his course on how to start your own podcast. Brandon's episodes stood out to me by how well organized they were. His ideas are clearly articulated and he breaks down exactly how to understand your target audience. Brandon is smart, approachable, friendly, and helpful. Highly recommend!"
Brandon is the Founder of Plato University, where you can get a personalized education built around your passions, highly in-demand, real world skills, and the impact you want to make. Being a poor kid from the trailer park living in a broken home, he knows the power of education to transform ones life. But after chasing education's promise of a golden ticket, he graduated with a degree in a career he was not passionate about or felt would make a real difference in the world. Ultimately he had no meaning, impact, or sense of purpose in his life. Since then, he's surrounded himself with and learned from dozens of social entrepreneurs making a difference in the world, built half a decade of experience as a designer, marketer, and educator for mission driven companies, and built educational programs that have reached over 80,000 people.
