We have a climate avoidance habit and it’s time to break it. A sizable majority (73%) of Americans know that climate change is happening; a majority (62%) know that it is human caused. But a majority (59%) also say they discuss global warming with their family members or friends “rarely” or “never,” according to Yale University and George Mason University researchers.
Drawing on insights from psychology, human-centered design and climate communication strategies, in this interactive webinar Smyer will outline a workshop approach to help you move people from anxiety to action on climate issues. You’ll leave with a clear next step for your own action plan and a clear understanding of what will motivate your audience to succeed.
The session will be recorded and posted to the Civic Ecology Lab’s YouTube channel.
