Do I need references?

A:

Sort of. We don't require a letter of reference. We do require the name of a person that we can contact if we want to know more about your leadership and organizational involvements. This person should be someone who is familiar with your leadership skills, and who understands your interest and potential as a climate leader. We'll need the name, phone number and email for your reference person. You should make certain that your reference knows that you're applying for the CLP, and that they might be contacted by us.
