Event description

Description

Join author and Director of Projects at Climate Outreach, George Marshall (Don't Even Think About It: Why our brains are wired to ignore climate change) for this special three-hour workshop on communicating climate change. Open to registered participants of ClimaCon 2017, this session is free but does require advance registration so that we can ensure we plan according to the number of participants for the workshop.

If you haven't read his book, find out more at his website, ClimateConviction.org:

"With witty and engaging stories, drawing on years of his own research, Marshall shows how the scientific facts of climate change can become less important to us than the social facts – the views of the people who surround us. He argues that our values, assumptions, and prejudices can take on lives of their own, gaining authority as they are shared, dividing people in their wake.

He argues that once we understand what excites, threatens, and motivates us, we can rethink and reimagine climate change, for it is not an impossible problem. Rather, it is one we can halt if we can make it our common purpose and common ground."
