Let's Talk Climate in Tawa
- feel concerned about climate change?
- want to talk about it but don't know how?
- worried about the conflict over local changes, plans and projects?
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 friends and whānau about what climate change means for us and what we can do about it.
Join us at our FREE workshop to learn different ways to connect with 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 REALTALK principles and put them to practice.
Respect your conversational partner and find common ground
Enjoy the conversation
Listen, and show you have heard
Tell your story
Action makes it easier
Learn from the conversation
Keep going and keep connected
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
