Dialogue in Climate Engineering with Youth – new workshops for 16-24 year olds

by Becky Parker
Are you interested in contributing to discussions on scientific, social and political responses to the climate crisis?  We are interested in working with young people aged 16-24 to identify questions that funders, scientists and policy-makers should prioritise.  We are hosting initial workshops in November and it would be great if you could attend – wherever you stand on these issues.  You can sign up here.
You will meet others, develop communication skills, contribute to a discussion guide, and then if interested will have the opportunity to contribute to a blog and be trained to use a set of climate questions cards with scientists, policy-makers and funders in February.
