    Book a Conversation Training - August 2018

    RSVP for Wednesday August 22nd

    We are super excited that you are on your way to become a Climate for Change facilitator!

    This is a practical workshop designed to kick-start your Conversations. Numbers at this session are limited to 10 so we can give you support tailored to where you are in the process of identifying potential hosts and contacting them. You will be supported to map you networks, identify potential hosts, call them and create and maintain your own personal database to keep track of your potential hosts, what you need to do next and when.

    Our goal at this session is for as many people as possible to leave with a date in their diary for their next Conversation. If you don't have a date, you will have some concrete next steps and a support plan to get a date in your diary as possible.

    This training is for all new facilitators, but is designed for facilitators to revisit as many times as they need throughout their time as a Climate for Change facilitator.

    Become a Facilitator


    Having more and better conversations about climate change is one of the most effective things we can do to stop it. Climate for Change volunteer facilitators are key to making such conversations happen at a scale large enough to really shift the social climate on climate change in Australia.

    If you are looking for something meaningful and effective (and fun) to do to stop climate change, read on.

    "I used to find talking about climate change extremely confronting and had struggled to share my concerns with others. Now I have started facilitating conversations and I don't intend on stopping. The people involved with Climate for Change constantly give me the energy and buzz to keep going!" – Charles, facilitator
    “Facilitating Climate for Change Conversations has been an incredible experience. I have learnt a lot about myself and about how to have effective conversations on climate change, which has been extremely valuable. During the gatherings, it was amazing to see people learning and empowering each other to take real action and the discussions were inspirational and exhilarating.”
    – Oli, facilitator
    “I have been a climate activist for 10 years and given lots of talks about both the science and the emotional aspects of engagement and disengagement, but this event did both in an integrated way and was the most satisfying I have experienced.” – Carol, facilitator

    What do facilitators do?

    Climate for Change facilitators are trained to run our Conversations in people’s homes. These Conversations are part presentation, part facilitated discussion. The facilitator’s role is to help guests understand:

    • what climate change means for them and the things they care about most
    • what needs to be done to stop climate change and how quickly
    • what they can do that is most powerful and effective, then inspire them to take action.

    Being a facilitator also involves supporting hosts prior to their Conversations to ensure their success.

    The best facilitators are not climate-change experts but people who are good at listening and passionate about making a difference. Most of the climate-change information presented at a Conversation is shown in a video; we provide training and ongoing support for everything else.


    We ask facilitators to commit 3-5 hours a week for a minimum of six months, during which time you should aim to facilitate two Conversations each month.

    We match you with an existing Climate for Change "Mentor" facilitator so you have “on the job” support as you get started.

    We encourage facilitators to find their first host or two among their networks. After that, your hosts will come from the Conversations you facilitate.
