Talking to Friends and Family in a Climate Emergency and Making Personal Action More Effective

February 6 @ 19:00 - 21:00

Free
Nikki Jones

With concern around climate change at an all time high, Frome Town Council and Sustainable Frome are organising a free workshop to explore how we can talk to colleagues, family and friends about climate change.

Nikki Jones, independent writer and researcher on energy, who will be leading the workshop said ‘With just eight years of carbon budget left before we are more than likely to hit 1.5 degrees of warming, there are many urgent and sometimes painful questions that we need to ask each other.

What do you say to colleagues and friends who continue to fly long-distance? How do you deal with close family who ‘just don’t get’ the climate emergency? How should we speak to children on the subject to ensure they don’t suffer from climate angst and feel empowered to take action?’

The free workshop will take place at 7pm on Thursday 6th February at the Town Hall.

Donations to Avon Needs Trees requested.
