Climate Conversations ‘How to’ Guide
Author(s): Climate Outreach and Greener Scotland
Climate change is an issue many people are passionate about but feel it’s difficult to discuss with a wider audience. This practical guide is designed to help anyone wanting to start, and widen, the conversation about climate change with a small group of people. It can be used to have a conversation about what our options are – locally and nationally – in terms of reducing both the causes and the effects of a changing climate.
This guide offers a step-by-step approach to help people to engage with the issue of climate change and enjoy being part of a conversation. This approach is based around a 70-minute conversation with a group of approximately five to ten people. There are three elements to this guide:
1. A Script to guide you in facilitating the conversation
2. Materials to aid the conversation
3. A Checklist to help you remember everything you’ll need
Additional resources include three reports on the research behind the ‘How to Guide’:
- ‘Desk review’: provides an overview of participatory climate change research in the UK and identifies best practice principles for running climate change workshops with the public
- ‘Findings from the Workshops’: includes an in-depth account of the findings from this project’s research workshops
- ‘Framework for Developing Conversations’: explains how the findings from the research workshops were used to design the ‘How to’ guide
