Maria Talero

Climate Courage, LLC
Denver, CO

I'm a Colombian, bilingual, climate change educator, facilitator and consultant. I design and implement social learning processes that jumpstart authentic communication and action on climate change as well as other social issues. My approach is based on my academic research in an area of cognitive science called "embodied cognition."

After leaving my full-time career as a philosophy professor in 2009, I've been working on the Front Range as an independent contractor while raising my two small daughters. I am a 2014 Community Climate Change Fellow through the EPA-sponsored EE Capacity program as well as the recipient of the 2017 CAEE Outstanding Environmental Educator Award.
