“I am already amazed at how I now hear people differently and think about what they say and how I contribute in regard to ideas. It’s been a very fundamental shift for me.”
Common Cause Workshop participant after reflecting on the session
Last month we held a full day Common Cause workshop with 40 people in Melbourne. This gathering brought together a network of people interested in applying the Common Cause approach in Australia. Hosted by Climate Reality Australia, participants included people from a diverse range of disciplines – including environment, development, psychology, marketing, fundraising, government, research, travel – working on environmental and development issues.
We saw it as imperative to ensure the workshop was conducted in the spirit of the environmental values at the core of our work. It was therefore decided that to save on costs – both financial and environmental – that our 2 presenters running the workshop from the UK would join us by video conference.
