Meetup conversations for the climate change curious - Let’s chat about how we chat about climate change.
As Americans, we love talking about the weather but don’t ever talk about what’s really happening. While over 70% acknowledge man-made climate change is taking place, less than 30% of us talk about it with our family and friends- yet we all have to be part of the solution together!
Why has climate change become such a taboo conversation like politics?
In this meetup, we discuss this phenomenon called “climate silence” and share stories and insights for opening up this dialogue and staying positive when all the news of species extinctions and massive climate disasters daunts your newsfeed.
Together, we’ll share our hopes, fears and talk about how we can succeed!
Chats are groups of 6 and focused on a one-hour conversation at coffee shops and brewpubs around the city to foster community and collaboration. These discussions are focused on breaking the "climate silence." Fellow organizers for future conversations welcome.
Connect with your fellow climate curious for a group conversation about how we chat about climate change. Sure, we read about it, but do you ever talk about how you're feeling about it with your family and friends? Should we? How can we make these conversations easier, more productive, and seize the opportunity to unite to achieve our hopes and dreams?

Its okay if you're not an expert on the science and solutions as we wont be discussing them heavily in-depth here.
