During the meeting, we introduce ourselves, tell of any good news, and long-time members explain to newcomers how Citizens' Climate Lobby advocacy for action on climate change complements protest demonstrations.
We will discuss plans for raising community awareness of actions that need to be taken to mitigate the looming climate catastrophe.
I am pleased to announce that we have a guest speaker. Scientia PhD Candidate in the School of Psychology at UNSW, Ms Belinda Xie, will speak about how social and psychological factors influence the way we perceive climate change and our willingness to take climate action.
The talk will focus on findings from a national survey of Australians, but will also include insights from the field of environmental psychology more generally. The aim of this talk is to help you understand the most important socio-psychological influences on climate-related behaviour, and to provide suggestions on how to target these influences when designing, communicating, or implementing climate change initiatives.
We entertain, educate and support each other in raising public awareness about the seriousness and urgency of acting to find solutions to the climate disruption problem by
- proposing a brilliant method of pricing fossil fuels
- helping each other with writing letters to newspapers and to community leaders
- form well-thought-out strategies for meetings with community leaders, including politicians, especially to encourage consensus on the urgent need to stem carbon emissions.
Our meetings are interesting and enjoyable, even though the underlying motive is serious and the involvement of people at the "grass-roots" level has never been more important.
Hoping to see you there!
