CLIMATE ACTION OPPORTUNITIES

Volunteer Role: Host for a "Kitchen Table Climate Conversation" (KTCC)
Organization: ClimateFast
Location: Toronto/GTA, Ontario

ClimateFast is launching an initiative entitled Kitchen Table Climate Conversations (or KTCCs, for short) that will get people talking about, and motivated around the climate crisis. In particular, raising awareness leading up to the next Ontario election in 2023 is important. We are looking for volunteers to participate in this process.

Platform: ZOOM

Details of Hosting

You would:

  • partner with a trained facilitator (who will help lead the meeting) and a trained tech operator.
  • invite 6 to 8 people to the ‘table’ (e.g., co-workers, colleagues, friends, family, neighbours, members of groups you belong to).
  • gather information about your group to identify their interests and knowledge level if needed. This can be done informally, by asking a few general questions or in a preliminary zoom meeting. Sample questions: what do you know about how climate change works? Are you currently involved in any climate justice action? What are you most interested in discussing about the environment?
  • work with the facilitator to identify resources that would help with discussion and plan the session.
  • attend at least one overall planning meeting of the KTCC committee (if possible) to get a sense of the bigger picture. You are welcome and encouraged to attend more if you feel you want to be a part of the ongoing planning and/or host/facilitate/provide tech support regularly.

Benefits:

  • You will become more confident talking about the climate crisis.
  • You will expand your climate crisis network
  • You will spread awareness of the need for a livable future for all.
  • You will use and develop many skills including: communicating orally and in written form, researching, facilitating, and operating Zoom.

Time commitment:

  • The KTCC Meeting – 1 -2 hours
  • Preparation – approx. 3 hours leading up to the KTCC
  • Debrief with facilitator – 30 min.
  • Additional optional hours – Joining the KTCC team. Attending 1-2 hour KTCC planning meetings weekly/biweekly. Hosting and/or facilitating ongoing. (varies)
