Combining sobering truths with seriously good solutions, this workshop is all about the everyday opportunities we have today to make changes to our household’s and communities’ carbon footprint. 

This is an important how to moment; where we can change the conversation from doom and gloom to hope and inspiration by reducing our own emissions and increasing our drawdown of carbon. Join us for this free, informative and powerful workshop –  and chose the actions that will inspire you!

Come along to Talking Climate and:

  • Understand how our planet’s climate is changing with new climate science
  • Get a clear picture of the global solutions and practical steps on how to apply them at a local level
  • See how your actions fit into the big picture of collective change
  • Connect and learn with likeminded community members.
