We’ve been so busy fresking, training and recruiting new superstars that we barely have time to share what we’ve been up to! Here’s a whistle-stop tour of what our small team got up to last week.
On Monday, Ash ran a Climate Fresk facilitation training with Société Générale at their London office, skilling up a team to roll out the Fresk internally. At the same time, Lucas popped down to the University of Exeter’s Penryn campus in Cornwall to meet some students for a workshop.
Tuesday saw Rupert and Naomi heading to their local Climate Emergency Centre to run a community Fresk at Zero Carbon Guildford. Across the country, Matilde ran a workshop for University of Exeter in Exeter. And Ash was getting his imagination going on Tuesday and Wednesday, learning about one possible vision of a ‘Zero Carbon Britain’ with the Centre for Alternative Technology.
Not slowing down yet!
Despite train strike obstacles, Ash, Rupert and Lea ventured north to run a workshop with a British Business Bank team in Sheffield on Thursday. Down at Bournemouth University, a team were trained in how to run the Climate Fresk, in advance of a big rollout that we’re coordinating. More to come!
Rupert then continued his journey up to Blackburn on Friday to run a junior version of the Climate Fresk with some eager year 10s from Darwen Vale High School, kindly funded by Assystem. (Let us know if you’d like to sponsor a workshop for your local school – it’s a cracking climate action!)
In the meantime, we’ve been blown away by the quality of applicants for our temporary position! If you’re one of these, thank you for applying and for all you shared. It’s amazing to affirm how many top people there are out there who really care and are driven to act in the face of the climate crisis.
Phew! What a week! It’s incredibly rewarding to help so many teams across all age groups and contexts engage with the climate crisis. We get to support people as they explore what the crisis means for them personally, how it affects their work, their industry, and their community.
Feeling motivated and happy to be doing what we do! (And perhaps in need of a cuppa…)
