Event description
Want to take some personal action on Climate Change? Attend just one or several of these engaging workshops.

About this Event

This series of workshops is based on Carbon Conversations, heralded by The Guardian as one of the top 20 ways to save the world from climate change. This series of 6 workshops focusses on personal action for all aspects of a carbon footprint.  There have been over 6000 Carbon Conversations participants in the UK, and Carbon Conversations groups are now in run in several countries around the world. 

The Salisbury Centre has commissioned The Surefoot Effect Community Interest Company to adapt the sessions for use in the Salisbury Centre to include mindfulness and relevance to the work of the Centre.  Several research projects have shown that people typically save 1-3 tonnes of carbon emissions per year by participating in these friendly and relaxed sessions.Come to just one or several of the workshops. The sessions are:

16/3 Zero Carbon Future

23/3 Home energy

30/3 Travel (then a two week break)

20/4 Food

27/4 Consuming and Waste

4/5 speaking to Friends and Family about Climate Change (it would be helpful to have attended one of the previous sessions before this one)

The accompanying handbook, In Time for Tomorrow, available for download, has been reviewed by Naomi Kline:“This lovely handbook covers it all...reckons honestly with the psychological impacts of a crisisthat is far too easy for many of us to deny in our everyday lives...”Naomi Klein, author of This Changes Everything and The Shock Doctrine. Please contact pam@surefoot-effect.com with any questions you may have. The sessions are free but spaces are limited so please book here.
