About this Event

Join us for another relaxed climate conversation supported by the Loch Leven Community Library. The background to this event is the climate action which took place around the world on the 20th of September 2019 and, in particular, the “Line in the Sand” event in St Andrews. Standing with 1,200 others on the West Sands in silence, contemplating our individual & collective responsibilities for climate change, reminded us of the power of coming together and how positive community action can really help to dispel fears and despair.

Our event is inspired by “climate conversations” which were popping up around the country last year. Back in the summer of 2019, the Scottish Government launched “The Big Climate Conversation”, a scheme to support citizens in arranging small, intimate conversations to engage their local communities on the climate crisis. There was no need for specialist knowledge about climate change or facilitation experience, just a desire to have a conversation. Materials were provided and funding was also offered.

Our event, “Let’s Talk Climate”, includes gentle activities in partners and groups to get us thinking about what the climate emergency means to us and to guide us onto a deeper conversation about options for responding in our lives and community. There are no expectations other than that. It isn’t about coming up with a plan to fix our planet, although ideas may flow, but simply an opportunity to listen to each other respectfully, to be heard and to come together. In particular, we hope that by coming together in this way we will feel less alone in our feelings and motivated to take positive action in our lives. You don’t need to know anything about climate change to join in the conversation – we would love to hear views from everyone regarding changes that will affect all of us.
