How to stay engaged to act in a climate crisis – strategies from psychology and community activism.
City of Yarra, Yarra Libraries and the Ewing Trust present:
How to Stay Engaged to Act in a Climate Crisis
Strategies from psychology and community activism
Psychological science can help people come to terms with the implications of climate change so that they can stay engaged and be part of the collective action needed to restore a safe climate.
Psychologist and researcher, Dr Susie Burke, will share some insights and provide strategies to help attendees more effectively engage with the climate crisis. She will also share approaches to help parents and children discuss climate change and help them build a sense of agency in a climate changed world.
A speaker from a not-for-profit organisation will discuss how they’re mobilising people who care about the climate crisis into powerful, organised communities who are pushing for real change.
Local secondary students will share their experiences taking climate action, followed by a Q&A panel discussion with the speakers and students.
A joint event to coincide with National Science Week.
