When you look at the data it turns out that about 3/4 of people in the whole U.S. don’t even hear somebody else talk about climate change more than once or twice a year. And if we don’t talk about it why would we care, if we don’t care why would we act? So action begins with conversation.
Katharine Hayhoe, Climate Scientist
One of the most important things we can do for our planet is have effective conversations about climate change. This is something productive we can do every day, multiple times a day.
It can help move dramatic climate change action into the Overton Window where issues need to be to get coverage by the media and action by governments.
THIS! Is What We Did offers free 3-week (90-minutes per week) classes on how to have Effective Climate Conversations.
Action begins with conversation! However, conversations about climate change can easily go off the rails. This class will show how to avoid pitfalls, promote understanding and “listen deeply” to people of all views on climate change. This is a foundational skill necessary to any successful action in support of the climate.
It doesn’t require you to be an expert and, most importantly, it’s fun!
One recent graduate of the class said, “I’ve worked in the area of climate change for a long time. I’ve never thought about conversation as being important. I now know it’s core to it all.”
Another said, “This class has helped me have more kind and courageous conversations. I find myself not only having more conversations about climate change, but about other sensitive issues important to me.”
