FROM PERMISSION TO ACTION
1 OCTOBER 2020
On Thursday 1st October 2020, the 24-hour Global Climate Coaching Conversation returned 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.
The second 24-hour Global Conversation was held on 1st October from midnight to midnight UTC. On the hour every hour, we handed over from country to country, starting in New Zealand at 13:00 local time and finishing in Hawaii at 13:00 local time. Note: The conversation taking place at 16:00 UTC was in Spanish.
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 was a space to explore these questions in more depth, to share experiences, discuss opportunities and find some answers aligned with our diverse coaching contexts.
The conversations were 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.

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.
Climate psychology researcher, eco-psychologist , writer, community gardener
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.
Coach (ICF MCC), Coaching business owner
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.

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.

Heightened consciousness and lifestyle shift when I embarked in a global ecosystem sustainability program. A spark lit up to be a catalyst, starting with transforming own vegetable and fruit waste into plants; in taking positive steps towards a better planet.

Dr. Anne Dolly Kuzhimadathil
Over the years, I have learnt that focus does not mean that we become blind to what is happening around us & the best of intentions mean nothing if not followed by action. When individuals come together, governments listen, societies change and the world transforms. I am humbled to be part of a community that seeks to revitalize mother earth and preserve its preciousness.

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.
