However, trying to make a difference as just one individual, particularly with an issue as overwhelming as climate change, can often feel both daunting and futile. But you could feel empowered when you truly understand how everyone has a role to play in this invigorating forum.
This event will feature two very passionate climate warriors - trained campaigner and author, Anna Rose and Joseph Zane Sikulu, 350.org's Pacific Campaigner. They will discuss their front-line experiences in "climate change advocacy, community engagement and government action". If you have any questions, do bring them along to this forum as there will be a Q & A after the talk.
