GORDtalks presents: Parenting for A Planet
June 8th at 7pm Register HERE
From fires and floods to snowfall in May, the effects of climate change are becoming more obvious with every year. It's easy to get lost in despair or denial, but neither is helpful.
In this interactive session, we'll start by unpacking the climate crisis, looking at the causes, the current situation, and the solutions (yes, there are solutions!) We'll also share stories from parents in the For Our Kids network, and look at how the sense of responsibility parents feel towards their kids is a powerful motivator for taking action. Finally we'll brainstorm together to come up with actions that you can take in your home, community, schools, workplaces and politically - actions that are doable no matter how much time you feel able to commit.
You are welcome to submit questions/comments in advance, regarding topics you would like to see covered in this event, to firstname.lastname@example.org
