I wanted to follow up on my involvement in the ‘Climate Emergency:

powerful truth-telling or a turn-off?’ panel by sharing some resources with


* I spoke about communications within the context of broader campaign

strategy. You can see a summary of key campaign strategy elements on the

Change Agency’s website here:


* The Change Agency is an activist education initiative aimed at improving

the effectiveness of individuals, organisations and campaigns pursuing

social and environmental justice. We’re proud to have a long connection

with the climate movement. You can see past climate action research we’ve

done here: http://www.thechangeagency.org/01_cms/details.asp?ID=73

* A key factor I spoke about during my talk was hope, and how an inspiring

vision and accessible actions can encourage people to take action. I’ve

collated resources on sustaining activism here:

http://www.thechangeagency.org/01_cms/details.asp?ID=100. On this page

you’ll find an article I wrote about hope and activist burnout, as well as

a review of the Transition Handbook which discusses the psychological

impact of climate change, and the value of an inspiring vision.

* Another panellist, Victoria McKenzie-McHarg, presented a great model for

communicating (Why-How-What instead of the reverse). For more info see this

TEDTalks video:


* In the second half of this year the Change Agency intends to run

activist education workshops on story-based strategy, drawing on the work

of smartMeme: http://www.smartmeme.org/. Please let me know if you would be

interested in participating, or helping to organise a workshop.

* Get in touch if you would like to discuss these resources, or would like

Follow up to Sustaining Activism/Avoiding Activist Burnout

I have collated a number of resources about sustaining climate activism on

this page: http://www.thechangeagency.org/01_cms/details.asp?ID=100

This includes books and workshops you may find useful, and some articles

at the bottom of the page which I’ve written, mostly with a climate action

focus. This is a sweet one which shares self-care strategies people

contributed at the first climate action summit:


Feel free to spread these resources far and wide. One of the simplest

things we can do to burnout-proof our groups is talk about stress,

feelings, and how we can manage. Subscribe to our enews for updates and
