Come learn how to jump-start new strategies for effectively and persuasively communicating the urgency of climate change in this interactive workshop on the most surprising and challenging lessons from social psychology. We are deeply prone to “us vs them” thinking and other cognitive biases, and we selectively ‘filter’ information to make it fit our worldview. This makes us less effective messengers when we talk to people who do not share our perspective.
Maria Talero, PhD, is a climate change educator and former full-time philosophy professor, and has presented at JUC before. She is a member at First Unitarian Society of Denver.
Please RSVP to let us know whether you want to stay afterwards for a soup dinner (vegan or meat, gluten free) or to attend just the workshop. Free thanks to the generous support of JUC’s Green Task Force, JCRES, and a donation from climate activist Leslie Glustrom with Clean Energy Action.
