Our presentation this month is “Changing the Climate Change Conversation,” by Susan Wood. Learn to tell a story about climate change that will engage people in positive ways, overcome traditional barriers, and cue people to think productively about solutions. This interactive talk will explore cultural models or understandings that keep people from taking action on climate change, and will introduce tested metaphors that let you communicate more effectively.
Susan Wood is a Fidalgo Island resident and and environmental educator at the Padilla Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve. She has recently completed a NSF-funded training offered by the National Network for Ocean and Climate Change Interpretation, led by the New England Aquarium in Boston.
