Carbon Conversations Groups offer a supportive group experience that helps people reduce their personal carbon footprint.  They deal with the difficulties of change by connecting to values, emotions and identity. The groups are based on a psychological understanding of how people change. 

Small groups meet with trained facilitators in homes, community centres, workplaces or other venues. The groups offer:

  • space for people to explore what climate change means for themselves, their families and their aspirations
  • permission to share their hopes, doubts and anxieties
  • time to work through the conflicts between intention, social pressure and identity
  • reliable, well-researched information and practical guidance on what will make a difference
  • support in creating a personal plan for change

The meetings use professionally designed, reliable materials to cover climate change basics, ideas for a low-carbon future and the four key areas of the footprint. Facilitation training equips suitable volunteers to facilitate effective, stimulating groups.

Please see the programme tab for further information.
