Kitchen Table Climate Conversations (KTCC’s) is a grassroots initiative spearheaded by ClimateFast and led by those willing to host or facilitate a conversation. Its goal is to empower people to hold conversations about climate justice that increase understanding of the climate emergency, honour emotions, spark effective actions and solutions, emphasize the power of collective efforts, and underline the need for political advocacy.
