Queering the Climate Conversation – reimagining ecology

Join the co-founders of the global Climate Coaching Alliance (CCA), Dr Alison Whybrow, Dr Josie McLean and Eve Turner together with Dr Stephan Dahl to discuss how coaching is evolving within the context of large social and environmental issues we are confronting. You will hear how the CCA is developing – it is now over 1000 members in just 15 months of existence. Further, we will share what the CCA community is learning about how to raise awareness about these confronting issues (climate and environment) without closing the conversation down. Eve, Alison, Stephan and Josie will also share some of the major themes that emerged out of the CCA’s 3rd 24-hour global conversation, “What’s mine to do?’ held on 4 March 2021.
