Upcoming event: “Climate Change is an emergency; what do we know about best ways of communicating and influencing decision-making?” Oct 20th

Steady State Manchester are having an event. Details below.  It’s intriguing that the premise is that we’ve had “successes” and can “make even more of a difference.”  All the evidence suggests that here in Manchester we have not.  Emissions “reductions” are in line with what every other similar city has done and due to national grid factors, basically.  Few councillors have bothered to do their own ‘carbon literacy’ training and activists sat by as elections that were supposed to be held to a stakeholder/watchdog group were… never held.   But, we need to believe we matter. These are the stories we tell ourselves… Meanwhile, the carbon accumulates

 

As temperatures reach unprecedented levels, there is a renewed urgency to ensure action is taken on climate change. Knowing this may engage some people and encourage others to run a mile.

Campaigners, academics, museum curators and others are tirelessly communicating about climate change with everyone possible in a range of ways.  What have we learned from our successes and is there more we can do to effectively engage that will make even more of a difference? Steady State Manchester has a holistic view; climate change cannot be addressed without changing the economic model.  How can such complex ideas be most effectively shared?

This cafe conversation aims to bring together a diverse range of people involved in communicating about climate change with all sorts of people to reflect on where we are now and what we can learn.

At Cross Street Chapel Cross Street Manchester M2 1NL on Thursday 20th October 6.30- 8.30pm
