HOPE – Climate Conversations that Don’t Suck

Facilitated by Jill Sarick Santos, RScP
Saturday, February 22
2 – 4 pm, Martha’s Hall
Priceless Pricing (see below)

Even as we’ve been experiencing the impacts of a changing climate, consensus among members of government, media, or even in your own community, remains inconsistent.  People who don’t necessarily agree about this issue may even be in the same family. How can we have conversations about climate change, especially about the pending impacts to People-Planet-Profits, that don’t create more divisiveness and frustration? We begin with HOPE.

  • Healing: conversations that heal the division and soothe the fear around pending change
  • Organizing: invite your family, your neighbors, your larger community, your city, your bioregion to join together
  • Planning: identifying opportunities for adaptation, positive response and collective resource sharing networks
  • Empowering: each other to recognize our independent and collective strengths

This workshop is for anyone who is either fearful or hopeful about our future on this planet. Together, in community, relying on authentic listening and non-violent forms of communication, we can plan for a hopeful future.
