Fuller Conversations February Series

Climate Conversations: Language and the Climate Crisis


Service Description

Stave off the February doldrums and join us for our in-person conversational series! Talking about climate change, and examining the language we use to do so, is one of the most important first steps in changing our behaviors. This short series will draw on ideas found in Margaret Atwood's Oryx and Crake and Katherine Hayhoe's recently-released Saving Us. Atwood's book offers a compelling look at how language abused can lead to all manner of other abuses. And Hayhoe writes, "The most important thing every single one of us can do about climate change is talk about it—why it matters, and how we can fix it—and use our voices to advocate for change within our spheres of influence." Together, we will think critically about language used to describe and interact with the environment, and consider practical ways to raise our own voices in advocacy. As with all our series, the promise is "no homework." Each session will provide context for discussion, and while reading can enrich your experience and offer new ideas to consider, it is not required. The registration fee covers the entire 4-week series, which begins on Feb. 3 and ends Feb. 24.
