Workplace Conversations

Employee engagement tools to suit any business, organisation or council

About

We know that meaningful conversations are one of the most effective tools to change individual hearts and minds and drive action.

Through deep peer-to-peer conversations, we engage and activate audiences that other organisations find hard to reach, connecting them with a community of people who are taking action – creating the groundswell of support we need to compel our leaders and businesses to take action.

Our employee engagement tools, detailed below, are designed to maximise impact for businesses, organisations or councils. These can be mixed and matched to suit individual needs, however we recommend using all three in conjunction to achieve deepest engagement.

Our Tools

  • Effective Conversations Workshops

  • Climate Conversations

  • Climate Leader Training


Effective Conversations Workshops

An expert-run workshop to up-skill executives, managers and staff in best practice climate communication.

Designed for client-facing staff, the workshop will ensure that participants are well equipped to effectively communicate purpose in a range of settings, from formal presentations to informal conversations.

The workshop is informed by the latest Climate Compass research and Climate for Change's experience conducting Climate Conversations in a range of Australian communities.

The full-day workshop will ensure participants:

  • become effective communicators about climate change
  • learn how to tailor their message for different audiences
  • master their story of self
  • practice having effective conversations with clients and members*

*An optional add-on will give participants the opportunity to practice climate conversations in a 'real play' session with professional actors


Climate Conversations

Host a Climate Conversation for your staff or customers, professionally facilitated by Climate for Change.

This could serve as a standalone tool for raising awareness and engagement, or as an opportunity to experience the model before beginning our Climate Leader Training. Read about the impact of our Climate Conversations Program in our Impact Report.

Climate Conversations start with a host, who invites friends to their home for a meal or gathering. A trained volunteer facilitates a discussion about the science of climate change, its impacts and solutions. Attendees are given the opportunity to host the next conversation, volunteer and donate, growing the impact locally.


Climate Leader Training Partnerships

We work with you to build climate leaders within your organisation and community. Stepping into positions of leadership on climate in your workplace could include initiating projects, or training to become facilitators in order to engage clients, staff and community members in climate action.

We'll develop a Climate Leader training to support your staff to continue to engage on climate change within the organisation and with clients. This could include:

  • Tailoring our Climate Conversation script to reflect your strategic priorities regarding climate action and desired conversation outcomes
  • Further training Climate Leaders in climate communication
  • Training Climate Leaders to become Conversation facilitators
  • Providing ongoing support to leaders, including regular communications and monthly up-skilling events

We've successfully partnered with a number of fantastic organisations to set up successful Climate Leader training programs since 2020, including:

  • Scottish Communities Climate Action Network
  • Outdoors People for Climate
  • Coffs Climate Action Group
  • Willoughby City Council
  • Environment Centre Northern Territory
  • Jewish Climate Network
  • Mornington Peninsula Shire

 

Pilot Partnership: Jewish Climate Network

“At the Jewish Climate Network, we understand that we are in the crucial decade to act on climate change. Our partnership with C4C has allowed us to speed forward to meet this challenge. Even with a minimal staff, with C4C's help, JCN has been able to lay foundations which will allow us to step forward into 2021 ready to deeply engage our community. [C4C's] expertise and understanding are matched only by [their] interpersonal skills and ability to creatively problem-solve. JCN has greatly benefited from this partnership and highly recommend it to other organisations who are bringing climate action to their communities through evidence-based conversations.”
