How To Talk About Climate Change
Equip yourself with the tools and knowledge from this interactive session to give voice to the well-known, daunting issue of climate change.
Attempting to talk about climate change can feel overwhelming. How do you bring the issue up in a way that sparks a change in attitude and behaviour? In this workshop, author and climate campaigner Anna Rose will help empower you to speak up on these issues and effectively use your power to help solve the climate crisis.
Presented as a part of Conversation Starters 2019: Temperature Rising, a weekend of art, discussion and action.
What's in it for me?
You will learn the dos and don'ts of climate change discussion and how to move people to take meaningful action and care about climate change. After the workshop, you will have the chance to stay connected with other workshop participants and put what you have learnt into practice.
