Do you often have inner monologues about whether to discuss environmental topics close to your heart? Did that last disagreement with your uncle put you off sharing updates about The Amazon?
Join this three-course dinner (including paired wines!) dedicated to D&Ms about how we want to talk in this climate. This event will unite like-minded folk bursting to share how they really feel about our special home planet. Using a School of Life approach, each course will invite participants to dive deeper into questioning their relationship with environmentalism and how to meaningfully connect with others.
The aim of this event is to step away from mainstream conversations about climate, which centre on telling people what to do, and instead, start having deeper, more meaningful, and connected conversations. The intention is to equip attendees with a different way of starting conversations about the climate with loved ones, moving away from being divisive and instead, experiencing deeper conversations that come from the heart.
Rosie Pham, Phani Harsha, and Tim Shue are half of Talking in this Climate, a podcast dedicated to talking about how to talk about climate in this climate. The podcast was started during lockdown 2020 and they have just finished their first season. They are interested in inviting others to have deeper conversations about their relationship with the environment. While connected to navigating eco-anxiety and practical solutions, they also aim to move beyond binary conceptions. In exploring multitudes, they hope to progress conversations beyond ‘shoulds’ and ‘right/wrong’.
