Lets talk about how climate change feels...

I realized the current work I do doesn't reach the amount of people needed to create a safe and healthy future. I acknowledged also my small ethical actions didn't amount up to much in the grand scheme of the climate change action required. I am researching emotions about climate change for my Ms in Applied Ecopsychology and how we can sustain ourselves to be active, productive and hopeful and empowered.

    Ongoing Facilitator Training - October 2017

    Join us for a night of connecting and important facilitator training.

    Now that we have an updated Conversation script, we're very much looking forward to having October ongoing facilitator training (OFT) be about:

    1. showcasing the unequivocal need for systemic change, and
    2. how facilitators can both fully understand this themselves as well as communicate this to Conversation guests.

    Please RSVP so we can plan our catering and venue setup.

    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 gatherings 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 gatherings in people’s homes. These gatherings 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 gatherings 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 gathering 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 gatherings each month.

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

    To find out more, head to our Facilitator FAQ page.
