Let's Talk Climate in Tāmaki Makaurau
- feel concerned about climate change?
- want to talk about it but don't know how?
- want to discuss climate change with your children in age appropriate and truthful ways?
Then Let's Talk Climate is for you.
It's about ditching the lectures, learning new tools to sit down for a good old kōrero with your tamariki, friends and whānau about what climate change means for us and what we can do about it.
We are excited to be part of the Auckland Climate Festival amongst the many amazing events that you can check out here. Join us at our FREE workshop to learn different ways to connect with our tamariki, friends and whānau about climate change - all ages 18+ welcome.
We know starting these conversations can feel awkward and messy, especially if we are feeling overwhelmed, think we won't agree or worry about conflict.
Let's Talk Climate aims to equip you with the skills and tools to have good conversations about climate change. When we have good conversations, we experience or deepen a sense of connection, feel like we have been understood and also understand another perspective a bit better.
In our workshops, you will learn about our TALKWELL principles and put them to practice. This is a judgement free space, where we can have open and honest kōrero about the different challenges we all have. So book today and join us to #LetsTalkClimate!
"Climate change can seem overwhelming, but each of us has this superpower - of talking with and engaging the people we love, who talk to other people, who talk to other people, who talk to other people, until everyone is talking about it, which changes public and political will for climate action. And it all starts with a simple conversation!" - Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, Director of the Yale University Program on Climate Change Communication
Please note these workshops are best suited for people who are concerned and want to be able to talk about it with others rather than those already heavily involved in climate activism.
Please advise when registering if you require childcare or have accessibility needs for the workshop.
