Speak Up! How To Talk About Climate Change

Is there someone you’ve been wanting to talk to about climate change but you’re worried that you don’t have all the facts or won’t be able to answer their questions? Cool Planet is having a speaker training on Sunday, November 20, from 3 to 6 PM at  Macalester College, 1600 Grand Ave, St. Paul. Fee of $10-25  but no one will be turned away if they can’t pay. Register online or call 952-920-1547.

Dr. John Abraham from St. Thomas University will be talking about the science of climate change and then Dr. Christie Manning (Handbook of Sustainable Behavior) and Craig and Patricia Neal (Art of Convening) will talk about HOW TO TALK.  I haven’t met the Neals but I’ve heard Christie speak and what she’s got to say is very interesting.

I can’t make it on the 20th but if you go, I’d love to hear from you.

 

About thinkofitasanadventure

We are a 50-something couple living in the Longfellow neighborhood of Minneapolis. We attended a sustainability conference at our local high school in November 2010, with keynote speaker Richard Heinberg from the Post Carbon Institute. What we heard shocked us deeply. We finally understood the need to transition away from fossil fuels as quickly as possible. We immediately began to change the way we live. We joined together with other folks in our neighborhood to learn more, to do more and to have fun doing it! We're part of Transition Longfellow. We're choosing to change now and to "think of it as an adventure." If you are on this journey too, we'd love to hear from you.
