‘Talking Climate’ : Climate Change Communication Workshop with George Marshall
SCACC committee have agreed to cancel SCA November meeting to go to this very important event which is free. Rest assured, we’ll be back to normal business at our December meeting (now taking place Tuesday 12th December).
When are we going to start talking about climate change with people outside – or even within – our own social bubble? And how?
Join George Marshall for an insightful and witty workshop that will leave you with a whole new set of tools to help you engage your friends, family and colleagues, as well as new audiences, in climate change conversations. Discover how our sense of identity can affect how we respond to climate change and where we can find common ground, even with people whose values are different to our own.
George Marshall and the organisation he co-founded, Climate Outreach, are the leading European specialists in climate communications. George has advised the Scottish and Welsh governments, the United Nations and international NGOs in engaging new audiences in climate change, including youth, trade unions, people of faith and people with conservative values. His book, Don’t Even Think About It, is widely regarded as one of the most important books published on climate change conversations.
Taking place on Tuesday 21st November, 6 to 8pm (with drinks from 5.30pm). University of Sheffield, Workroom 2, Mappin Street, Sheffield S1 3JD. To book for the event, click here. Afterwards, SCA people have reserved the Dukebox room of The Grapes Pub, 80 Trippet Lane to have drinks and a chat – all are welcome to join!
