Welcome to the new Carbon Conversations website.
The Surefoot Effect CIC has given up management of the Carbon Conversations project, along with responsibility for publishing the materials and running the website, carbonconversations.org. We have created these new pages, primarily to make the materials available. This site does not have the mechanics for managing groups nor any login for users. It will replace the existing pages in a few days. (The old pages can be seen for a few weeks at http://carbonconversations.knownas.co.uk/ so if you want to download anything from the old facilitator’s area you should do so quickly.)
The Carbon Conversations materials are being re-issued under a Creative Commons Licence and will be freely available for download from the new website, in a few days. While stocks last, hard copies of the materials will be available to facilitators at discounted prices via www.surefoot-effect.com Remaindered copies of ‘In Time for Tomorrow?’ are available both from Surefoot and here.
After 11 years, the Carbon Conversations project has largely run its course. The materials are increasingly out of date and the type of psychological group work that we pioneered needs to be adapted to people’s changing needs and the current political climate. There are still successful groups being run in the UK and the materials and methods are being adapted around the world. We hope that the common experience of everyone who has participated in the project will continue to inform their work on climate change and that the methods and materials will prove a departure point for more interesting projects.
We hope the other pages here will answer queries about the changes and the use of the materials. We may find the time to extend this information and list organisations who are using Carbon Conversations and their activities. Please email us, if you have queries or would like us to post something about your use of Carbon Conversations, but please be tolerant if we are slow to reply!
