Talking with Children about Climate Change

This Workshop has been postponed. Contact or call 5472 4842 to register interest.

This workshop aims to help parents to think through the impact of climate change on their children, cope with that knowledge themselves, whilst at the same time supporting their children to cope with climate change now and in the future.

By attending this workshop participants will be able to:

  • Think through how they, as parents, can respond to the current reality of climate change and the threat of worse impacts to come.
  • Learn strategies for coping with the ‘uncomfortable truths’ of climate change
  • Gather ideas about how to support their children to cope with it.
  • Learn about the skills and capacities that our children, the next generation, will need for engaging in efforts to restore a safe climate, and for adapting to the inevitable changes ahead.

Date: Monday 30th March.
Time: 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Where: Castlemaine Community House
Cost: $15 (Full) / $10 (Concession)
