How to Talk About Climate Change (and Not Lose Your Friends)

While 8 out of 10 Australians believe in climate change, we don’t seem to be talking about it with the sense of urgency it deserves (if at all!)

Let’s change that.

The experts tell us that we must take action immediately to drawdown greenhouse gas emissions, yet it seems to be business-as-usual, everywhere you look. Now, more than ever, we need to be having conversations in our community about securing a safe climate future.

BUT WE GET IT: sometimes talking about this topic with friends, family and colleagues can feel awkward, difficult, or even socially inappropriate.

Come and learn some practical tips for having safe and effective conversations about the climate emergency (without alienating people or being called an alarmist!)

We will also provide tools to help you put these new skills to use straight away. Learn how you can step up your action on climate change and help us make September 20, the biggest ever global #ClimateStrike. This time, the school student strikers are asking the adults to step up, and march with them.

Being active with like-minded people is the best antidote to despair. We invite you to join us: everyone is invited, everyone is needed.

NB: While this is at a pub, it is a structured event. So to get the most out of it, please blockout the afternoon to attend!
