How to Talk About Climate Change

People Power Challenge 2020

While the numbers are slowly falling, still almost one in three Canadians say they aren’t convinced that climate change is caused by human and industrial activity. Emerging evidence shows that talking with colleagues, friends and family is an important way to change people’s minds and increase the urgency of action on climate change.

Join us on August 19th for an interactive presentation from the Ryerson Leadership Lab on how to talk about climate change. This event will provide concrete tips and tricks for how to reach your community and inspire climate action.

The event will take place via ZOOM from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. on Wednesday August 19. Upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email and details on how to join the session.

Please note that this is a People Power Challenge event. Only individuals from participating organizations will be able to join this session.
