Individual Action

Studies have shown that just talking about climate change can help people understand and accept its reality. Our network member The Perth Coping with Climate Change Café  is one example of folks getting together to share stories, fears and solutions in an open and respectful way.

“We weren’t looking for solutions but found relief in being able to have an open, frank exchange and to listen to others.  With greater comfort there was a willingness to raise the topic in other fora in the community and to try ways to change our behaviour to lower their carbon footprints and make ourselves feel better at the same time. ” —Kate McLaren, Climate Change Café organizer
