Let’s Talk Climate: A Conversation Toolkit!



MN350 has created Let’s Talk Climate to encourage and support real, honest conversations about climate change, climate justice, local impacts, and actions we can take in our communities to build a powerful climate movement.

What is a Let’s Talk Climate Conversation?

Let’s Talk Climate Conversation is an opportunity to have an intimate discussion about climate change and environmental justice with the people in our personal networks and communities. Let’s Talk Climate Conversation’s are led by MN350 provided facilitators and focused around an interactive slideshow that provides a baseline of knowledge on climate change and climate justice with time for conversation where participants are given space to share their thoughts and concerns. At the end of a Let’s Talk Climate Conversation, we hope participants will walk away with the tools and information needed to take action for climate justice!


Why Host a Let’s Talk Climate Conversation?

Many of us experience tension between what we know is happening to the planet because of climate change and what we’re doing about it. Not only that, but it can be a difficult subject to broach with the people we see every day–even though a lot of us are feeling the same way. MN350 provides tools to get Minnesotans talking about climate change in our everyday lives, making important connections between environmental and social justice, and taking action. Most importantly, we help one another to realize that most of us are worried about climate change – we are the majority!


How to Host a Let’s Talk Climate Conversation?

With the help of the MN350 Host Guide and an assigned navigator to help plan and promote your event, hosts can throw a small gathering in a home with a few close friends or invite a larger group to a public venue. You provide the guests, and we’ll provide the rest!
