One of the most important things you can do about climate change is to talk about it.

We know the majority of Australians are concerned about climate change, but this doesn’t always translate into action. People trust their peers, family members and loved ones more than they trust experts, scientists and environmental organisations. 

You are more likely to open people’s minds. Conversations, particularly those based on shared values, lead to greater awareness and concern; and help lead people to action on climate.

This webinar provides some great tips to give you the confidence to start a discussion and get you started. You can help your community normalise conversations about climate change, and what climate action means.
