September Topic: Q&A with Rebecca Huntley, led by Katerina Gaita
Rebecca Huntley is one of Australia's most experienced social researchers and former director of The Mind and Mood Report, the longest running measure of the nation's attitudes and trends. She holds degrees in law and film studies and a PhD in gender studies, and is a mum to three young children. It was realising she is part of the problem older generation that caused her change of heart and to dedicate herself to researching our attitudes to climate change.
Her recently released book: How to talk about Climate Change In a Way That Makes a Difference is her 6th book. Touted as a guide to understanding ourselves and each other as we face the climate crisis, Rebecca has used her years of research in social attitudes and human behaviour to help readers learn to talk to others about this crisis effectively.
Hosted by Katerina, we will be joined by members of the Climate for Change Giving Circle - a community of key financial supporters of our work. We highly recommend you read Rebecca's book before the session.

August Topic: MPEGs and the Post-Conversation Pathway
During this OFT we will focus on the way we can best support others to take action after attending our Conversations. We'll hear more about MPEGs from Sue and the MPEG team and the Mentor Team will also take some time to break off to have a quarterly meet-up.

Every fortnight we collect the most important climate change news and compile it in an easy-to-understand format that helps you to see the bigger picture of climate change. We also include at least three actions you can take.
Our Climate Updates are compiled by Julian Atchison, a long-time volunteer of Climate for Change.Sign up
Thank you for expressing your interest in being a Climate for Change facilitator outside of Australia.
We receive regular requests from people outside Australia keen to do our training. It's really exciting, because it means that there are people all over the world willing to stand up and take action on climate change. However, due to limited capacity, we are currently unable to offer our training and mentor support program to people outside of Australia.
Our mission is to create the social climate in Australia for effective action on climate change. We are hopeful that we will one day be able to widen our scope to the rest of the world. By signing up below, your details will be added to a growing list of interested parties, and if resources become available, we will be in touch with any opportunities.Sign up
