Operation Noah's annual supporters' meeting
Saturday, 23 June 2012 from 11:00 to 16:00 (BST)
It's one thing to tell someone about climate change, but something else for them to listen.
Operation Noah's Ash Wednesday Declaration earlier this year made a clear and prophetic call the the church. For the message to take root we'll need to dodge public resistance to the facts.
Paul Kerensa is a stand-up comedian, BBC scriptwriter and regular on the Greenbelt Festival line-up. He'll be exploring the potential of humour for communicating climate change.
Mark Letcher, Operation Noah board member and director of Climate Works, will update us on the latest research on getting the climate message across.
