What: Carbon Conversations Groups offer a supportive group experience that helps people halve their personal carbon footprint.
The meetings use professionally designed, reliable materials to cover climate change basics, ideas for a low-carbon future and the four key areas of the footprint – home energy, travel, food and other consumption. Discussions of practicalities are woven together with discussions of how people feel and what these changes mean personally. Carbon reductions of 1 tonne CO2 are typically made by each member during the course, with plans developed to halve individual footprints over a 4-5 year period.
Basic facilitation training equips suitable volunteers to facilitate effective, stimulating groups. Carbon Conversations groups operate well as a cascade scheme. Carbon Conversations is an excellent tool that complements other carbon-reduction initiatives and community projects.
Cost: £20 including the handbook and refreshments.
