This session will give an overview of the C-Change Conversations Primer that has been widely and successfully presented to moderate and conservative audiences across the country, reaching more than 8,000 people to date. The non-confrontational, nonpartisan approach of the presentation is effective with groups who feel uncomfortable talking about climate change. Reaching groups like land trust supporters to deliver compelling data from trusted sources is critical to expanding our country's understanding of the risks of a changing climate and to shifting the perception of climate change from a political issue to a human one that will affect everyone. Learn how the presentation can be tailored to local communities showing projected temperatures and seal level rise based on an average of 26 different climate models. Case studies will be presented that communicate the important role that land trusts have to play in greenhouse gas mitigation and the development of resilient communities. Participants can share information and exchange ideas about best practices when making the connection between land trusts and climate change.
