Talk Action has three training days coming up at the Melting Pot in Edinburgh. The first one is the most obvious fit for Scottish Communities CAN members, and the other two could well be of interest too.
The pressing issue of climate change demands active involvement from the public: but facilitating engagement on these complex issues can be challenging. Organisations and individuals need to consider energy and climate change issues when planning their work. This course outlines why energy and climate change can be a particularly difficult issue for communities, how to overcome this, and create long-term interest in limiting and adapting to climate change. The course will benefit anyone working with or seeking to work with community organisations on behavioural changes around energy and climate change, including organisers, community workers, and activists.
