Talk Climate to Me is a fun, free, unscary, online, team-based climate education experience for women in Canada! It is a space for women* who want to learn more about the climate crisis in an accessible, supportive and non-judgy environment. TCTM is all about creating a friendly and fun space in which to learn about this wildly important issue. Each session is made up of multiple teams with their own Team Lead. Team Leads will facilitate discussion during break-out times and provide support outside of course sessions. This is where you come in…
As a Team Lead, you will play an essential role in the TCTM experience. You will be a point of contact, a support and guide for your team as they navigate through the (sometimes scary) topic of climate change. Team Leads will help with recruitment and communication outside of sessions, and facilitate discussion during sessions. Don’t worry, no climate expertise is required! All you need is an eagerness to learn about the climate crisis and share that experience with others. In this role, you will have the opportunity to hone your facilitation skills, expand your network with other veteran and emerging climate leaders, build up your climate-related work experience, and make a meaningful contribution towards reversing climate change.
As a Team Lead, you will have three main responsibilities:
All Team Leads will be required to attend two training sessions in September. These sessions will provide you with guidance and resources for recruitment, facilitation, and talking climate!
