Sign up for this citizen science project has now closed, but we invite you to watch the webinar recordings below and look out for our Handbook on How to have climate change conversations, coming out at the end of November.
This past summer, we have been seeking participants for a project exploring how to have conversations about climate change in our daily lives - and how to come out of them feeling inspired and connected. At the same time, we are building a hugely important evidence base for the future.
The project is a collaboration between Climate-KIC and Climate Outreach working to widen and deepen public engagement in climate change by producing world-leading advice and practical tools for engagement.
Participants will get:
- A training webinar in August (see recording below) laying out the evidence base on how to have effective day-to-day conversations about climate change;
- Support - including from your own community - in having four to five conversations about climate change in your daily life over the summer period, with different sorts of people;
- The ability to feedback your experiences in written and (if you like) video form and be a part of a wider piece of analysis;
- A second webinar in October pulling together the feedback from all the participants into a piece of research;
- A short report giving down to earth guidance on how to have conversations about climate change in your daily life, produced as a result of the research;
- Inspiration to go on doing it!
5 minute introduction to the project
Webinar 1: #TalkingClimate How to have a climate change conversation
This webinar lays out the evidence base on how to have effective day-to-day conversations about climate change. We invite you to join us in a citizen science initiative to learn new research skills in public engagement on climate change and to test those skills on your friends, family and colleagues.
Webinar 2: #TalkingClimate Results and Analysis
In this webinar, Robin Webster reports back on the findings and what they mean for our recommendations on how to have good climate conversations - including the barriers we encounter, how to start conversations, and how to go on doing this in the future.
