    Help us shift the conversation on climate

    Having conversations about climate with people in your networks is one of the most impactful things you can do to affect change in your own community.

    In the lead-up to the federal election, we need to have as many conversations about climate change as possible to build strong support for climate action.

    We're running a series of events that will help you improve your climate communication skills.

    We're focusing our work in the strategic electorates of North Sydney and Ryan to have maximum impact – so if you're in these areas, we'd particularly love to see you there!

    Download the Climate Conversation Guide

    Have you ever talked about climate change with someone and felt like the conversation didn’t go as well as you planned? Or have you avoided having these conversations because you don’t feel well equipped? 

    We've developed the Climate Conversation Guide to help overcome these barriers. It will help in all kinds of situations, from a backyard BBQ through to more structured and intentional conversations and official engagements.

    It includes 5 general conversation tips that help to frame the right approach to a conversation about climate change, as well as more specific tips depending on who you are talking to.

    We hope this resource will help you have more targeted and effective conversations about climate change with others.
