Weekend 1 Agenda

Saturday –

Aim: to give the Assembly members an introduction to climate change.

The first day will include an introduction to climate change and a discussion about the urgency of addressing this global issue. We will also introduce some of the causes and impacts as well as ideas and opportunities for change as we move into the future.


Sunday

Aim: to explore what climate change means for us and barriers to change.

In the second day of our first Assembly weekend, we will introduce the concepts of ‘mitigation’ (how we can reduce our contribution to climate change) and ‘adaptation’ (how we live with climate change).

We will also introduce the context for needing to take climate action including a discussion on what factors we need to consider when tackling climate change.
