Having lots of quality conversations about climate change is one of the most effective things we can do to stop it. In 2023, we are offering a Climate Conversations Facilitator Bootcamp to build the capacity of up to 40 passionate people across Australia.
The twelve week volunteer program involves weekly online training sessions, in which you learn essential skills for talking about climate change effectively with others. You will put these skills to immediate effect as a facilitator of climate conversations within your community. By the completion of the program, you will be a confident climate change communicator, skilled at engaging others to take action.
Prior to completing the bootcamp I didn't think I was 'green enough' to be credible in supporting action on climate change, I didn't think I had enough knowledge to influence anyone and felt quite powerless to make a difference. The bootcamp changed all that!! The C4C resources, training, amazing group of bootcampers and wonderful supportive staff have made a powerful impact on me both personally and professionally. I feel equipped, supported, confident and I now believe I can make a difference. Thanks so much C4C for the opportunity. - Jo Olsen (Bootcamp Participant 2022)
