Having lots of quality 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.
Climate for Change offers a learning experience that includes engaging with written, pre-recorded materials and digital learning materials, as well as live virtual webinars, mentoring and workshops.
Our Facilitator Learning journey includes four programs that will inspire you to create social change through conversation, and build support for climate action in the community. We want to help you support and motivate others to take effective climate action, and talk confidently about climate change with those around you. Throughout your entire learning journey we want you to experience personal growth and find opportunities for leadership within the climate community.

I have learned so much that I have taken with me into other jobs, and skills that I think will continue to benefit me throughout my entire career. From presenting in front of a group of strangers, to the art of asking, to practicing listening and considering before speaking, to my perspective on how to engage with people who I disagree with. I also have much deeper understanding of our political system and social change in general. I am a different person now” - Nicole (C4C Facilitator)
