Inspired by our October guest speakers, Ellie Cohen of The Climate Center and science communicator Dr. Richelle Tanner, here are three tips for talking about climate change and advocating for action:
1. Know Your Audience
Understanding the needs and concerns of a community first will help you choose the right words when talking about climate action.
2. Talk To The Kids
Parents are often influenced by their children. Advocate and get involved in youth education efforts.
3. Find A Trusted Messenger
Sometimes you are not the right messenger. Support community leaders that share the cultural values of that community in sharing the message of climate action.
