Webinar Description

We conduct our webinars by Zoom and in-person, with two facilitators in small groups with a maximum of 18 attendees to allow for group participation. We believe that people learn best when they can question and dialogue.

The webinar is designed for people who are interested in learning more about climate change, becoming more effective in communicating with others, and actively mitigating the impact on our planet and on ourselves. The course is not designed for climate deniers.

We have everything we need to start tackling the climate change emergency. So the answer to the question presented in the title to this webinar, Can We Stop Climate Change?, is affirmatively, “Yes, we can.” But the real question is Will We Stop Climate Change? The answer is conditional – only if enough people are well-informed and are willing to make bold decisions and take immediate action.
Climate change is really happening.
It’s caused primarily by humans and our burning of fossil fuels.
The impacts of climate change are catastrophic – globally and personally.
We can act. We have the tools and technologies. People are already taking effective action.
We already know what needs to be done and how to do it. We can have hope that early and bold action will avoid the worst.
“Great guest speakers, good breakout room questions – wonderful graphics – excellent pace and timing and keeping the class on track.”
—Karen G., Ossipee, NH

“I believe there is no better use of one’s time than to become educated and inspired to effect positive change in the world. Within several short evenings, I have learned so much about climate change, its impact on our environment and our society, and the multitude of ways we can all make a difference.”
—Lucas Thors, Edgartown, MA
