    Building the mass support needed to win climate justice means engaging our friends, family and peers through conversation. And most of us know all too well how frustrating those conversations can be. Fortunately, learning how to have powerful conversations with confidence is a skill that everyone can learn.

    In this training workshop, we’ll teach you the fundamentals you’ll need to turn arguments into conversations that strengthen relationships, win hearts and minds of others whilst we care for each other as we do the work. 

    This workshop will run for 120 minutes and cover a jam-packed suite of tried and tested techniques that experienced organisers use to build movements.

    Over the course of the training, we’ll dive deep into:

    • The context and strategic purpose of conversations - knowing when and where to use them (and when and where not to).
    • Useful frameworks to help you structure your conversations.
    • Active listening - the core of all good conversations.
    • Multiple opportunities to test your new knowledge in a safe environment.

    Achieving Climate Justice means building a movement across all intersections of society.

    Persuasive and powerful conversations are crucial to our success.

    By the end of this training, you’ll be able to employ active listening and structured conversations techniques, and will have completed the basic practice necessary to take these new skills out into the world and continue building the movement for Climate Justice.

    CJU Social Club is an opportunity to connect with like-minded folks in a fun and relaxed online environment. You can expect to share some quality yarns, strengthen your relationships with fellow members and feel a sense of belonging amongst a community of incredible people.

    We invite you to come exactly as you are and engage as much or as little as you'd like. The space will be held for two hours, but you're welcome to drop in or out at any point during that time.

    There won't be a formal agenda or specific topics covered during Social Club, but facilitators will always be present to guide conversations and host group activities where needed. If folks find themselves digging into the juicy details of a particular conversational thread we can create a breakout room to allow thoughts, feelings and ideas to be explored to their fullest.

    Don't stress if you can't make this one, we'll be hosting Social Club every fortnight on alternating Friday and Sunday evenings so there will be plenty of opportunities to come along in the future. You can check when the next Social Club is on and see what other exciting CJU events are coming up here.

    As we are faced with the profound global consequences of climate change, colonialism and capitalism, it’s crucial that we stay connected and foster a sense of solidarity in our communities.

    In recognizing the growing need for supportive spaces to move through our thoughts and feelings, CJU will be opening up monthly online reflection sessions for people to come together, yarn and be heard in an understanding and caring environment.

    These sessions will be facilitated by the skilled expertise of Linda Selvey and Rod Mitchell, who together share a wealth of experience in holding space for people to navigate complex feelings.

    Linda Selvey is a public health physician and has also been a climate and environmental activist for all of her adult life. She has just retired so that she can devote more of her time to activism. Linda has also been practicing re-evaluation counselling for more than 30 years. When she lived in Perth she led a monthly climate activist support group, and she has also led workshops for climate activists.

    Rod has worked in community development, training, lecturing, trauma counselling and climate advocacy over the past 4 decades. His experience in practicing and teaching co-counselling has been the bedrock for much of his work and a powerful tool for taking on the oppressions that divide us. He leads a weekly co-counselling support group on "care of environment".

    We intend for these sessions to provide you an opportunity to listen, reflect and if you feel comfortable, to share from your own experience. We hope you will join us in putting collective care into practice.

    It’s important to note that these sessions are not intended to replace any professional or personal support you may need or already have in place. Rather they are designed to complement existing resources and serve as an additional means of connection. We encourage participants to continue seeking guidance from mental health professionals, friends, family and other support networks as needed.

She has just retired so that she can devote more of her time to activism. Linda has also been practicing re-evaluation counselling for more than 30 years. When she lived in Perth she led a monthly climate activist support group, and she has also led workshops for climate activists.

    Rod has worked in community development, training, lecturing, trauma counselling and climate advocacy over the past 4 decades. His experience in practicing and teaching co-counselling has been the bedrock for much of his work and a powerful tool for taking on the oppressions that divide us. He leads a weekly co-counselling support group on "care of environment".

    We intend for these sessions to provide you an opportunity to listen, reflect and if you feel comfortable, to share from your own experience. We hope you will join us in putting collective care into practice.

    It’s important to note that these sessions are not intended to replace any professional or personal support you may need or already have in place. Rather they are designed to complement existing resources and serve as an additional means of connection. We encourage participants to continue seeking guidance from mental health professionals, friends, family and other support networks as needed.

    CJU Social Club is an opportunity to connect with like-minded folks in a fun and relaxed online environment. You can expect to share some quality yarns, strengthen your relationships with fellow members and feel a sense of belonging amongst a community of incredible people.

    We invite you to come exactly as you are and engage as much or as little as you'd like. The space will be held for two hours, but you're welcome to drop in or out at any point during that time.

    There won't be a formal agenda or specific topics covered during Social Club, but facilitators will always be present to guide conversations and host group activities where needed. If folks find themselves digging into the juicy details of a particular conversational thread we can create a breakout room to allow thoughts, feelings and ideas to be explored to their fullest.

    Don't stress if you can't make this one, we'll be hosting Social Club every fortnight on alternating Friday and Sunday evenings so there will be plenty of opportunities to come along in the future. You can check when the next Social Club is on and see what other exciting CJU events are coming up here.

    Building the mass support needed to win climate justice means engaging our friends, family and peers through conversation. And most of us know all too well how frustrating those conversations can be. Fortunately, learning how to have powerful conversations with confidence is a skill that everyone can learn.

    In this training workshop, we’ll teach you the fundamentals you’ll need to turn arguments into conversations that strengthen relationships, win hearts and minds of others whilst we care for each other as we do the work. 

    This workshop will run for 120 minutes and cover a jam-packed suite of tried and tested techniques that experienced organisers use to build movements.

    Over the course of the training, we’ll dive deep into:

    • The context and strategic purpose of conversations - knowing when and where to use them (and when and where not to).
    • Useful frameworks to help you structure your conversations.
    • Active listening - the core of all good conversations.
    • Multiple opportunities to test your new knowledge in a safe environment.

    Achieving Climate Justice means building a movement across all intersections of society.

    Persuasive and powerful conversations are crucial to our success.

    By the end of this training, you’ll be able to employ active listening and structured conversations techniques, and will have completed the basic practice necessary to take these new skills out into the world and continue building the movement for Climate Justice.
