Let's Talk Climate Action: Tidy Towns making sense of climate change

We were very pleased with the "Lets Talk Climate" workshop, it was very well tailored for the audience and the attendees left with good concrete ideas to take back to their communites.
Gavin provided a straight forward, easy to digest workshop on a complicated subject.
I would recommend this workshop to other Local Authorities and Community & Voluntary Groups.

Gavin Harte gave his half day "Lets Talk Climate" workshop to members of the Carlow Tidy Towns Network recently.
It was an excellent workshop with accessible information and some great take home suggestions. The workshop was interactive & engaging throughout the 3 hours.
I highly recommend it for Tidy Towns Networks or other groups wishing to learn about Climate Change..

Groups found the "Let's Talk Climate" workshop highly beneficial and were buzzing with ideas to bring back to their Tidy Town groups'.
Gavin was great to work with, really engaging and actively listening to all participants
I would highly recommend this workshop to anyone else working to build more climate action resilient communities in their county.

It was great. As a young person I was still able to understand everything said in a clear way. It was engaging and interesting and I would certainly recommend other young people to partake in any future workshops.

Let’s Talk Climate Action is an accessable education and awareness workshop for Tidy Towns committees. 

In recent years the Tidy Towns competition has had a growing focus on environmental issues that is spawning local innovation. This workshop is designed to assist with that creativity.

Today Tidy Towns communities are invited to enter the Community Climate Action Award to raise awareness of climate change and to encourage participation in projects to drive climate action. 

Let’s Talk Climate helps communities to raise awareness of climate change and promote behaviour change by encouraging climate action and to undertake projects that will set local communities on a path towards a low carbon, climate resilient future.

A half day workshop

ESD Training runs a half day workshop for Tidy Towns committees to help build climate capacity in towns and villages and to better understand the need for climate action at a local level.

The workshop has 3 parts:

1.An introduction to climate change -  the science, impacts and solutions

2.A facilitated workshop to identify possible climate actions at a local level

3.A role play workshop to prioritise potential actions for implementation at local level.
