What it's about (1)_edited_edited_edited_edited.jpg


Do you:

  • feel concerned about climate change?

  • want to talk about it but don't know how?

  • worried about the conflict over local changes, plans and projects?

Are you avoiding talking about climate change because:

  • you feel lectured to or it's information overload?

  • feel like you don't know enough?

  • want to avoid an argument with someone you care about?

  • think other people don't care?

  • left thinking "what now and what can I do?"​

Then Let's Talk Climate is for you. It's about ditching the lectures, learning new tools to sit down for a good old kōrero with friends and whānau about what climate change means for us and what we can do about it.

Join us at our FREE workshop to learn different ways to connect with friends and whānau about climate change - if you work, live or learn in Wellington and are 18+ then please feel free to register your spot today.

We know starting these conversations can feel awkward and messy, especially if we are feeling overwhelmed, think we won't agree or worry about conflict.

Let's Talk Climate aims to equip you with the skills and tools to have good conversations about climate change. When we have good conversations, we experience or deepen a sense of connection, feel like we have been understood and also understand another perspective a bit better.

In our workshops, you will learn about REALTALK principles and put them to practice.

​Respect your conversational partner and find common ground
Enjoy the conversation
Ask questions
Listen, and show you have heard

Tell your story
Action makes it easier 
Learn from the conversation
Keep going and keep connected

So book today and join us to #LetsTalkClimate!

"Climate change can seem overwhelming, but each of us has this superpower - of talking with and engaging the people we love, who talk to other people, who talk to other people, who talk to other people, until everyone is talking about it, which changes public and political will for climate action.

And it all starts with a simple conversation!" 

Dr. Anthony Leiserowitz, Director of the Yale University Program on Climate Change Communication

Week 6 - Quote_edited.jpg


How we feel about climate change matters because it influences how we act on it. How we talk about climate change matters because it too influences on how we act on it.

Right now thousands of people in Te Ika-a-Māui / North Island of Aotearoa NZ are hurting and dealing with the grief and loss from recent extreme flooding events and Cyclone Gabrielle. 

People are already grappling with how to talk about climate change and these increasing weather events in a way that makes sense of these events and the scale of change we need.

Our Let's Talk Climate project is based on social research that tells us that social change happens through conversation. We all process information, commit to ideas and action when talking with people we trust. 

The more courageous conversations we have about climate change, grounded in care and empathy, the more we can take action and make the good changes we need.
