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 3 - Agency: Creating the future we want
Instead of focusing on the doom and gloom narrative that usually is pinned to our future, this workshop explores imagining a tomorrow we want and different types of activism that might get us there.
We start by watching a teenage activist describe her dreams for the future. In groups, you then brainstorm your ideas and hopes and create a vision board. After watching a short video about climate activism, you discuss what this means to you. Then the group shares information about different climate organisations that they know.
Inspired by the energy and insights of the event, you write a pledge that commits you to the type of action you want to take in the coming weeks and months.
