Taking the Climate Justice Conversation Online
Kitchen Table Climate Conversation Webcast Series
Acknowledge, Imagine, Collaborate
Some of the most important subjects are the most difficult to talk about! Perhaps they cause anxiety, present challenges or require change. Often they pose very real threats and impact us and the world around us profoundly. They can feel overwhelming and out of control. This is true of the many interconnected crises we face. It is true right now, with COVID-19. It is true ongoing, with the climate crisis.
So, what can we do to face the challenges and create the change required?
Talking about it is a good start! In fact, one of the most significant things we can do is to create a compassionate space for one another to share experiences, feelings and explore ideas. With Kitchen Table Climate Conversations (KTCC’s), we suggest that you reach out and gather people round your virtual table for an open but structured conversation about climate justice.
To help empower these conversations, ClimateFast is running a series of KTCC webcasts on Monday nights throughout March - the 1st, 15th, 29th and April 12th between 7-9pm.
In a circle of conversational openness, we can acknowledge the impacts and challenges we face and the vital need for climate justice. We can spend some time expressing ourselves, fostering connection, empowering and inspiring each other. We can envision a better future and explore solutions and actions together.
KTCC’s help raise awareness about the climate emergency and how it is interconnected with the many crises we face. They centre the need to confront these crises in a just and urgent manner. More than ever, we need to question the status-quo, probe into what isn’t working, think outside the box and ask for more. KTCC attendees have the opportunity to acknowledge what we face and explore ideas together, imagining the best world going forward.
The conversation can help galvanize people to take on personal and political change to turn the emergency around. We need everyone’s experience, skills, vision and approach to do this and create a livable future for all. We need everyone.
For webcast two, we are running a climate conversation from start to finish!
Monday March 15th, 7-9pm
