Join the Post Carbon Institute in their upcoming webinar, We Need to Talk! Thursday October 10th 11am PT.

Talking about the climate crisis with family, friends, and colleagues can be so difficult that we choose not to do it at all, even when we feel passionately about it. How can we overcome our reluctance to have these important conversations? And how can we talk about this issue in a way that tears down walls and allows for real, meaningful connections?

We’ve asked Karin Kirk and Dr. Susanne Moser, experts in climate change communication, to help us understand the best ways to approach this overwhelming topic with the people in our lives.

During the webinar we’ll explore questions like:

  • How can we talk about the climate crisis in a way that inspires action?
  • What role does compassion and understanding play in discussing such a daunting and frightening topic?
  • How do we express the urgency and magnitude of the situation in a way that draws people into the conversation—rather than drives them away?

You’ll come away with a deeper understanding of the strategies that work, inspiration to connect with people in your community—even those who disagree with you, and real world examples of how to make these meaningful conversations have a real impact on the people in your life.

We hope you’ll join us for this important discussion.

Funds raised from the event will support Post Carbon Institute’s efforts to inspire, educate, and support many more people to respond with urgency and boldness to the defining challenges of our time.

A minimum donation of $25 will give you access to our live, online event as well as a recording of the event as soon as it’s available. Can’t make it to the live event? Donate a minimum of $25 and we’ll send you a link to the recording that you can access whenever is most convenient for you.
