Climate Change training in Glasgow and Edinburgh this June
Everyone knows about climate change. It is almost impossible to open a newspaper or watch TV without seeing something about it. But when you decide you want to get people to actually DO something, the real questions are how do I communicate what it's about - and how urgent it is? The Climate Outreach and Information Network (COIN) has been running effective, exciting and ground-breaking trainings in England and Wales for the past two years. Now two of the best trainings are coming to Scotland for two dates each.
This is for everybody who wants to gain confidence about communicating climate change at work, in their organisations, in the local community, and among friends and family.
