six-week session

Join a Six-Week Session

The Carbon Conversations program was developed by psychotherapist Rosemary Randall and engineer Andy Brown in the UK. We are pleased to apply this successful model to Toronto.

 

Hear from a past Six-Week Session participant, Rose, as she shares her experience with co-founder Amy Castator. 

Join a session, take climate action.

Concerned about climate change but unsure of where to start? Our flagship Six-Week Session program encourages you to explore the relationship between your life and climate change and helps you work with the complex emotions that make it difficult to act. 

 

We do this through two-hour facilitated group sessions over the course of six weeks. Each week, you explore a new way climate change relates to your life. Topics include: 

carbon footprint

 Looking for a low-carbon future

eco-friendly food

Food and water

clean home energy

Energy at home

waste reduction

Consumption and waste

individual actions

Travel and transportation

Looking ahead

future individual action

You don't have to do it alone.

Each Six-Week Session leaves you with increased clarity of the tools and resources available to take your own approach toward a less carbon-intensive life. The sessions are made up of eight participants and is led by two trained Climate Action Facilitators. These facilitators work with you to co-create a safe and judgement-free space for all participants. 

Before the sessions, I definitely was experiencing the uncertainty and hesitancy that many people are faced with when beginning a journey of climate action. By the end of the six weeks, I felt empowered in my capacity to contribute towards environmental awareness and now have the understanding to begin planning for a future where climate consciousness and action are a part of my day-to-day life.
