United We Move: CCL’s plan for climate action in 2021 – Seminars
December 6 @ 2:00 pm MST
Add a Sunday Seminar
Each of these virtual seminars lasts two to three hours (starting at 1pm ET on Dec. 6), taking our attendees deeper into the material than a standard conference breakout. When you register for the Dec. 5th conference, you can choose to RSVP for a Sunday Seminar as well, please select the “RSVP Sunday December 6th” ticket in addition to your Dec. 5th ticket. You can choose from one of four seminar topics:
- Bridging the Divide on Climate Solutions presented by Braver Angels (2 hours) While most Americans understand climate change is real, they disagree on solutions. Some seek solutions that maintain the status quo, while others believe that the problem requires major systemic changes. This session teaches communication skills to allow people to talk more constructively with each other about solutions to climate change.
- Envisioning Climate Success and Your Next Steps (2 hours) Peterson Toscano, host of Citizens’ Climate Radio, will help you appreciate your unique life experiences and connect them to your next steps into the future. Through a mind-expanding time-travel exercise, you will free up your imagination and consider new solutions.
- A lens into race and climate (2 hours) How do White and BIPOC individuals move beyond diversity to talk about race issues at a climate organization? Gain tools and practices for counteracting racial bias and microaggressions to help create a more compassionate and inclusive organization.
- A closer look at carbon pricing studies and CCL’s June Analysis (3 hours) Broken into 3 sections (45 mins each, 15 min break in between), we’ll first cover the updated Household Impact Study; second we’ll review two papers, one by Noah Kaufman which discusses the necessary carbon price rates to reach net-zero emissions by 2050 and another paper by Dr. Drew Shindell which speaks to the health benefits of a climate policy like H.R. 763; and finally we’ll go over the June 2020 Lobby Day notes analysis.
