Increasing dialogue and reducing polarization in the climate conversation in Canada in order to build consensus on the actions we need to take to build a sustainable future for all.
To encourage dialogue on climate change, For the Love of Creation developed Faithful Climate Conversations, a series of guides to facilitate small group conversations on climate change. Visit Pour l’amour de la Création for resources available in French. There are three guides available:
Creation, Climate and You – Designed for people who have rarely, if ever, talked about climate change in a group setting before, this guide focuses on gently surfacing peoples’ emotions and underlying thoughts about climate change.
From Concern to Action – For people who may have a basic understanding of climate change or are concerned about the effects of climate change, but remain uncertain about the best ways to act in light of this reality.
Building a Better Future – Meant for people who have already been involved in climate action at some level, this guide focuses on enacting political and systemic change to address the climate emergency.
The most meaningful part of the conversation for our group was talking about how we could build a better future for our university campus…
We were able to encourage one another to think about the possibilities for positive change and several participants commented that they left the conversation feeling more hopeful.
