24-hour conversation: 4 March 2021


Generating our pathways to climate and ecological action

Following the resounding success of our previous two 24-hour conversations, our third global conversation is set to be even bigger and better. We’d love you to get involved!

Tom Rivett-Carnac will join us on March 3rd to launch our 24 hour conversation, with his own coach, Jo Confino. They will explore how leaders can increase their agency, and recognise that climate change is an ‘everyone everywhere’ opportunity to build a new world that we can only create together.

When we asked Tom to join with us, he took no time at all to see the opportunity of turning the tables on Jo and putting coaches and coaching in the spotlight We are so excited to have Tom and Jo join us and we hope you are too.

A call to all coaches and aligned professions: We love the saying, “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second-best time is now.” Or in the words of Barack Obama, “If you want to prevent the worst of climate change before it is too late, the time to act is now.”

How do we bring forth the depth of awareness of our place as part of the web of life and come into action from that place? How do we inspire and catalyse a wider shift towards a thriving planet for all?

We need courage, compassion and the right kind of space to do this work – which is where 4th March comes in. Like a wave, we are coming together with the purpose of bringing to light what’s ours to do and how to get there.

What's Happening on 4 March?

This will be our biggest 24-hour global conversation bringing climate and coaching together. We have crowd-sourced this event, inviting all our diverse membership to bring their insights, gifts, techniques, and questions.

We have been astounded by the response!

What Would We Love to See Emerge?

We would love to see you find sessions and conversations that inspire, inform and catalyse you. We would love you to feel transformed with even greater capacity to face into our climate and ecological emergencies, growing your skills to creatively respond.

  • Go with your energy – what conversations are you drawn to?
  • What seems right on the edge of your comfort zone? Dive in.
  • Everything is open and free.

We are all learning how to be, how to respond, how to act. Whether you have just started to become curious about the role of coaches as we face into climate and ecological breakdowns, or whether you are a lifelong activist, there is room for everyone and all are welcome.

Who is This Event for?

Anyone who uses coaching principles in their work will find this a practical and empowering day to be part of. This includes coaches, coaching psychologists, facilitators, supervisors, OD practitioners and more.

For an overview of the sessions, see the emerging program.
