Learn how to have great conversations about climate change

Are you looking for ways to take action on climate change in your community? Do you live in Coventry or Warwickshire?

If so, did you know that something as simple as having a conversation with a neighbour, colleague or parent at the school gate could have a big impact?

A question in black text on a green background asks, 'How can we have better conversations about climate change?'
More and more people are looking for ways to make an impact on climate change.

We know conversations can be tricky, so we want to help you get started.

Grapevine has teamed up with Larger Us – which works to build broader coalitions for change – to deliver free online training to anyone who wants to up their game when it comes to climate conversations.

This is a brand new programme and it’s only on offer to a handful of organisations in the UK, Grapevine being one.

Learn how to centre fruitful conversations on things people care about when it comes to climate change.

You’ll learn:

Why conversations are so important and how they can lead to increased public engagement in climate action and stronger demands from our politicians.

How to start fruitful conversations with people in your community centred on the things they care about – like jobs, the cost of living, energy bills or public transport.

How to develop skills to help you really understand the other person’s point of view and keep the conversation on a positive trajectory.
