Our Workshops

In addition to our flagship 6-week program, Carbon Conversations TO hosts community workshops that integrate concepts of psychology, behaviour change and climate action. These engaging sessions offer unique insights and actionable takeaways for participants.

Addressing the Climate Elephant

Speaking with friends and family about climate change can be one of the most difficult conversations to hold.

Topics this workshop will touch on include:

  • How to help others feel that the subject is important to them and that they can do something about it

  • How to manage conflicts about the subject with people who we love and like

  • How to cope with our feelings when the topic comes up.
