Carbon Conversations TO Facilitator Training Program

Carbon Conversations TO is a local environmental group which is helping people find the motivation to act on climate change. Our programs are designed using a psychological understanding of how people react to difficult news, how they face the need for change and how to turn this into practical and effective action to reduce CO2 emissions. We are currently accepting applications for our Facilitator Training program this Fall. This could be a great volunteer opportunity for psych students to develop facilitation skills and apply some of the psychological principles you are studying in a unique real-world setting.
