To build trust and vulnerability with people who are different from you, you need to be able to share vulnerably about why you hold your beliefs and find your lived experience with climate impacts. This can be challenging for many people who are not on the frontlines of extreme weather events and feel a sense of duty, but are not sure why. In this workshop, you will learn to dig deep to discover your motivates, feelings, lived experience, and dissonance with climate change.
Compassionate curiosity lets you dig deep to get to the root of why people hold their beliefs without judgment. This is a key skill to meeting someone with different beliefs where they are at and transforming the conversation from attack and defence to listen and empathize. People can go down rabbit holes that don’t move the conversation forward, learning to be gently assertive allows you to get the conversation back on track to find common ground and focus on core values.
Most organizations have some form of external communications strategy. If you are looking to reach beyond your existing environmental supporters, you will have to communicate differently to be heard by on the fence, busy or unsure audiences. This workshop will give you some key messages, talking points learned from Neighbours United’s work, and help you practice integrating them into your communications.
Now that you have learned the core deep canvassing skills, it’s time to put them all together. Join the Neighbours United team for a deep canvassing training on an active campaign, then make deep canvassing calls right away to practice the skills you have developed. This supportive environment offers calling options for people of all abilities and comfort levels.
