Events to foster reflection and engagement
Meeting the emotional challenges of facing the climate emergency
Tuesday 18 February, 7-9pm, at YBF, Level 2, 520 Bourke Street, Melbourne
Margaret Klein Salamon, author of Facing the Climate Emergency: How to transform yourself with climate truth, and founding director of The Climate Mobilization in the US, will lead a panel discussion with Dr Sally Gillespie, Dr Charles Le Feuvre and Dr Susie Burke that explores the emotional challenges of facing the climate emergency.
How to talk with children about climate crisis
Tuesday 25 February, 6.15-7.45pm at the Reservoir Learning and Community Centre, 23 Edwardes Street, Reservoir
Children are worried about their future — they see and hear scary stories about climate change. How can we best respond to their fears? Should we try to shield them from reality? Should we support them joining the school strike? Join child psychologist, Professor Ann Sanson, and two local school students for a lively discussion on how we can best support children in these uncertain times.
Update on our facilitated workshops
We are passionate about designing and facilitating workshops for climate activists and climate-focused organisations. We are based in Melbourne and offer workshops in the city and occasionally travel to regional areas.
We are grateful that so many community groups and organisations are engaging us for workshops, especially over the past few months. It does mean (however) that we are currently booked up for the first six months of 2020!
While we are stretched for time we may not be as responsive as we would like, or may need to refer you on to other supports. Please know that we are hearing you and we are in the midst of planning ways that our organisation can meet this growing need.
Send us a message here if you have particular questions, comments or requests for yourself, your group or organisation. Keep in mind that new requests for workshops will likely be scheduled for the second half of 2020.
