Let's Talk Climate: 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.

Let’s Talk Climate 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.
