24-HOUR CONVERSATION

We’ll be doing this again sometime soon, but below you’ll find all the details for the 24 Hour Conversation that we ran on 1st of October.
We look forward to seeing you at the next one!

1 OCTOBER 2020

Wherever you live in the world, if you have a free hour between midnight and midnight UTC on Thursday 1st October, then join us in an exciting, challenging, engaging, collaborative conversation with other coaches around the world.

On Thursday 1st October the 24-hour Global Climate Coaching Conversation returns to host another round of thought provoking and inspiring sessions for coaches from around the world.

Our vision is for the 24-hour Global Climate Coaching Conversation to become a catalyst for meaningful conversations that accelerate the emergence of a human story aligned with a living Earth.

Earlier this year the Coaching at Work magazine facilitated the successful Climate Coaching Action Day on 5th March, 2020, in which the Climate Coaching Alliance took part with their ambitious 24-hour conversation. This brought together coaches from across the earth to discuss the journey from eco-curious to eco-active. The months following this event have seen greater awareness and urgency around the climate emergency as well as some insight into the societal shifts that are required. Whilst providing a moment to pause, the Covid-19 global pandemic has further highlighted the urgent need to restore a sustainable balance and regenerate our natural and human made systems.

The second 24-hour Global Conversation will be held on 1st October from midnight to midnight UTC. On the hour every hour, we will be handing over from country to country, starting in New Zealand at what will be 13:00 local time and finishing in Hawaii at 13:00 local time. Note: The conversation taking place at 16:00 UTC will be in Spanish.

The 1st October 24-hour Global Climate Coaching Conversation is about bringing a shift “from permission to action, globally and locally”.

From Permission To Action
We are often asked “How do coaches bring the climate and ecological emergencies into coaching conversations“? What do we mean by permission? What do we need permission for? And what action might we take? The conversation on 1st October will be a space to explore these questions in more depth, to share experiences, discuss opportunities and find some answers aligned with our diverse coaching contexts.

TIMINGS

The conversations will be facilitated by the following hosts at the times given. Click on the names to view the host profiles, or scroll down to see details of all the hosts. Check your local time here.

I’m learning each day to make choices and take actions which move my personal, professional and philosophical dials in the right direction for our planet. Every action counts. Enrolling others beyond our feelings of helplessness to discover effective actions; and staying awake to imagining transformative possibilities.

“Every little thing I do counts”
Dire warnings about climate change were being given in the mid-80s. Fast forward to 2019, Jeff Murray’s NZ novel, Melt, portrayed for me just how bleak that future could be. Around the globe, governments have come and gone, little has changed other than rearranging some deckchairs on the Titanic. We can’t wait for them any longer, each of us must take responsibility. I want to be part of the solution – to reinvigorate our beautiful planet and breathe life and hope for a different future.

“We’re not alone”

How might we bring the best of our humanity to shaping a regenerative future? How might we best serve the Climate Crisis and generations that come after us? These questions continually guide my practice. Though the scale of the challenges often feels overwhelming, what helps is to know we’re not alone, and by aligning personal intent and collective action, we create opportunities to reweave a new, more hopeful narrative, together.

“We need to talk about this, and this, and this…”

What I learnt from my climate psychology research was how vital it is to provide safe spaces for open conversations about the feelings and thoughts that the existential climate crisis stirs in us. Such conversations spark creativity, develop emotional resilience, forge deep bonds and empower action. CCA’s Global Conversation will open hearts and minds, and seed transformative communities and actions. It’s the kind of conversation that helps heal our world.

“Creating a united voice to support our earth”

For many, many years I’ve noticed governments aren’t doing enough to heed warnings from experts that we are heading into – if not already in – an environmental crisis. We are constantly witnessing the brutality of climate change, including the fierce fires in here in Australia and in California. We can make a difference by coming together with a united voice and a consistent message to support an earth we can all live in with its unique and beautiful creatures, and precious ecosystems.

It speaks of the urgency of this crisis and importantly the role coaches can play. Which is why I’m looking forward to joining with hundreds of coaches in the 24-hours conversation as through our conversation, collaboration and community more can be done – the crisis isn’t waiting.

“Harmony matters, let’s make it happen.”
The Covid crisis woke me up. It is the loudest in an escalating parade of nature events telling us the ecological balance of our magnificent planet is disrupted. While nature’s voice grows louder, we humans are still convinced that our desires and our rules matter. I realised we must develop the imagination, the clarity and the resolve to live in harmony with the life force that sustains us all.

Two years ago, I attended an environmental crisis project exhibition that my son was working on at school. Watching our next generations striving to save our planet and fighting for their future struck me hard. It was time for me to take actions – I joined the CCA global conversation to contribute with people around the world to make a difference for the present and the future.

I want to hand on to my descendants the beautiful nature I experienced in my childhood. When I was asked to join CCA, I thought it would make a small start. And if we can do this together, it will be more powerful and fun.

“As a community, what imprint will coaches make on Climate Change?”
This week, my mom, partner, and pets evacuated the valley I had grown up in S. Oregon, USA. This wildfire is threatening and burning down numerous towns in this valley—one wildfire of hundreds ravaging the west coast. Just months ago, it was Australia. I genuinely believe coaches and professionals working to create healthily relationships and wholistic systems have an opportunity, if not the responsibility, to combat climate change today.

When I first became involved in environmental health 50 years ago it did not occur to me that humankind would not act on the evidence before us and work to change direction.

Surely, the risk is now obvious and even vested interests will see that they are leaving their children an impoverished planet. There is no time to lose and I am committed to ensuring a path to sustainability.

“The Biggest Challenge for Coaching”
The climate emergency and ecological crisis is the largest collective challenge our species has ever, ever faced. Without a major shift in consciousness humans are incapable of stepping up to this challenge. 21st Century coaching has a major role to play in this shift in consciousness. We need to wake up and realize ecology is present in every coaching conversation. Recognized or unrecognized. Both as a challenge and a resource.

There are four elements believed to be essential to life: Earth, Air, Fire and Water.

During the first 24-hour Global Climate Coaching Conversation convened in March 2020, we were just coming through the destruction delivered by the 2019-20 Australian Bush Fires. Today, at this writing, fires are devastating the Western coast of the United States.
 

These four essential elements of life might now include a fifth essential, a human element, that is essential within any coaching conversation: Responsibility.

I look forward to us exploring an elemental conversation on October 1st.

The best coaching is deeply and inextricably linked to sustainability in the widest interpretation of the word. As coaches we often have conversations with clients around how to best manage personal energy for long term success, not burnout.
