350 Philadelphia is initiating a series of informal “Climate Conversations,” in which one of our volunteers visits a home, place of worship, or other gathering space to facilitate small, informal conversations about participants’ personal choices and concerns related to climate change.
These conversations are designed to support participants to build community, find people with similar projects and interests, and exchange suggestions about difficult choices in areas such as time management, eating, reading, travel, activism, oppression, parenting, emotional reactions, and existential dread.
They are for 5 to 20 participants of all ages, backgrounds, and political views, regardless of prior experience with climate charge. They can last 1-2.5 hours, depending on the needs of the group, and are free of charge.
Our current Climate Conversations facilitator is Eugene Chislenko. Eugene teaches ethics at Temple University, volunteers with 350 Philadelphia and the Sunrise Movement, and is in the process of starting a new group called Philosophers for Sustainability.
If you are interested in hosting a Climate Conversation, please get in touch with Eugene at email@example.com.
