Welcome to the Climate Party/ies
The three part Climate Party series brings people together to raise awareness around climate change and help create a sustainable future.
Climate change is a threat so huge, it becomes unthinkable. Many of us hear the dreaded words and either despair, anxiously distract ourselves, blame it on others, or deny it is happening. Although these are very human reactions, none is particularly helpful. So what do we do?
We come together and start talking about climate change. We share knowledge, support each other and combine our isolated efforts. We use our creativity and range of abilities to collaboratively shape a sustainable future.
The Climate Party series provides you with tools to do this. Three carefully designed events to spark a conversation around climate change and raise awareness.
Each party will have a number of playful activities designed to inspire community and transform any feelings of being overwhelmed into action. All you have to do is invite your friends, eat, drink and explore the topics.
There are three parties being held, but it is not essential that you attend all three. Each session stands by itself although you are more than welcome to book all three parties if you wish.
Let's get this party started!
We have no time to lose...
Drinks and snacks provided!
Climate Change Party 2 - Emotions: Why emotional intelligence matters
This party explores why emotional intelligence matters despite climate change being a scientific phenomenon.
A live opinion poll starts this evening before you move onto discussing whether reason or emotion are more effective when inspiring climate action.
We will play climate emotions bingo to raise awareness about the wide range of feelings triggered by this topic. In small groups, you will discuss helpful tools to deal with these. You then look at the importance of love and how it is a motivating force for climate action.
To end the session, you contemplate what you are most passionate about in this context, what motivates you to act and which particular skill you bring to climate action.
