Climate Change Condensed and 'How to win the climate change argument in a 15 minute tea break'

Climate Change Condensed Monday 15th September 4:30 – 8:00pm

This is the first course in Britain created specially for trade union members that covers ‘all you need to know about climate change’ in just three hours. There is plenty of discussion and debate along the way. You are guided through the issues by videos of experts – including scientists, campaigners and TU activists.

The workshop covers the causes and impacts of climate change, the need for adaptation, the
scientific and political consensus, the international carbon budget, large-scale solutions and carbon emissions. It also asks questions like:

What should the TU movement be going for in negotiations?

How should the movement respond to a low carbon future?

How can trade unionists obtain the benefit of the low carbon future?
'How to win the climate change argument in a 15 minute tea break'
Monday 22nd September 4:30 - 8:00pm

How do you persuade colleagues that climate change is real and serious?

How do you overcome denial?

"It's all China's fault". "They just want to put up taxes". "The real reason for climate change is
solar flares, I saw that programme last year".

This course arms you with ways to respond to these views. You work together to develop powerful arguments for action. The course pays particular attention to finding ways to
respond to people who either just don’t want to believe in climate change or don’t want to
act on it.
