Living the Change leadership training webinars
The election result highlights that we need to work on climate change at a number of levels. There's probably even more validity now to offering support for individual lifestyle change as an option.
ARRCC will be promoting Living the Change again in 2019, a campaign which encourages people of faith to make climate-friendly lifestyle changes inspired by the teachings of the major faith traditions.
Learning from last year, we’d like to create more opportunities for people to get together for conversations, because community support is a major factor in making lasting changes possible. We need volunteers who can facilitate some workshops or host home-based suppers, in order to help us roll out our ambitious program for 2019.
ARRCC has already offered one series of workshops and another is about to start, offering leadership training for people who would like to help. These are held over Zoom on three consecutive Wednesday evenings, with the next series starting May 29 (next Wednesday) at 7 - 8.30 pm in the eastern States.
We have a couple of places left. If you’re interested, please contact me ASAP via the RSVP to the right.
The webinars would cover:
May 29 - participants’ own stories; overall strategy, structure of LtC campaign in 2019, learnings from 2018
June 5 – motivating people of faith, levels of engagement, edging towards higher impact changes, doing this as part of a community
June 12 – participants’ plans for their own workshops or suppers, facilitation skills, ongoing support for volunteers.
