On November 29, 2022, Peter Sage posted Climate Science Disagreement: Not all scientists think human-generated CO2 is a problem on his substack blog. Lots of incredulous readers reacted negatively! So the next day he replied: "Some people disliked yesterday's post." but he made his important point: "It isn't settled. Not in the minds of about half of American voters."
People are talking past each other, neither convincing the other about science, facts, and their point of view. How can we better communicate? We need help!
SOCAN is offering Mastering the Art of Difficult Conversations a two-part workshop scheduled for both January 14, 2023 and January 21, 2023 from 2:30-5:30 p.m. PST. Participants are expected to attend both sessions. These sessions will be held in the Carpenter Room of the Medford Public Library.
Instructor Warren Kahn is a Senior Trainer for More To Life, an international educational non-profit foundation. Warren brings decades of experience to the SOCAN community in hopes of helping us be able to converse with anyone including those with very different points of view so we can help bridge the political and environmental divide and find common ground for what is needed to care for our planet and beyond.
Normally the cost for this training would be $350/person but Warren Kahn is offering it to SOCAN members for free..Participation is limited to 30 so if you are unable to attend, please email Kathy@socan.eco. Register here.
