A Sustainable Future: finding your way

Climate change is a huge and pressing issue, and it can feel overwhelming coming to grips with what to do about it. This workshop gives you the chance to explore a positive vision of a sustainable future and see how your particular skills, interests and aspirations can contribute to it.  Whether it’s a way with words, an ability to empathise or organise, a wealth of business contacts, or something else entirely, each of us has particular skills, interests and aspirations that might help building the sustainable future we want to see.This workshop is about inspiring and empowering you to find the way that is right for you – the way that enriches your life and makes a real difference.

In a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere, we will work together as a group, sharing our ideas and inspirations, supporting and encouraging each other.  We’ll explore:

  • What motivates us, what gets in the way, and what we can do about it
  • What a sustainable future might look like, and what it will take to achieve it
  • Some of the many ways we can make a difference, and let you reflect on what might be right for you.

Along the way, we will also briefly discuss the basics of climate change, what makes up your personal carbon footprint, and what are the most effective ways to reduce it.

We also offer an optional follow-on workshop which will give you a chance to share your triumphs, tragedies and plans, think about how to keep your momentum going, and look at fruitful ways to talk to your friends, family and colleagues so that they too can be part of the solution.

Comments from previous participants:

“I think it was a great way to meet people with a different interest and to work out for oneself why and where one wants to get involved.”

“I will definitely recommend it to my friends.“

“ ...it is fun, relaxing and reflective. Some students told me after the workshop that they were inspired by your enthusiasm. And they felt it a good opportunity for them to share stories, meet people with the same concerns and learn how to empower action.”
