ANZ Lab – Germinating the Seed – Inspiring public commitment to deal with climate change
In this month’s meeting, Andrew Gaines will introduce a bold vision and innovative communication tools to inspire public commitment to deal with climate change.
One of the tools is Kitchen Table Conversations – a way of conducting conversations about the big picture drivers that increase CO2 emissions. This is important, because while a majority of people accept the reality of climate change, relatively few have thought through what it will take to actually deal with it. Far more is involved than shifting to renewable energy.
To take this to scale, Andrew and colleagues are catalyzing a global movement of citizen-educators. Inspiring Transition is the support platform. Climate scientist Michael Mann is on the Advisory Panel, and a number of CCA folks, among others, are active colleagues.
