We have been collaborating with the group Klimaatgesprekken in The Netherlands, who have been adapting the international handbook for their own "Climate Conversations". They already have a team of experienced facilitators and are organising another training, with help from colleagues in the UK, in June.
a Tale of 2 Futures
Domspain Consulting in Spain are also adapting the CC materials as part of an EU Erasmus+ project. In 2016, The Surefoot Effect from the UK, Dom Spain from Spain and Ziniu Kodas from Lithuania, have secured €180,000 worth of funding for a 3-year long project with a focus on communicating solutions to energy issues and climate change at the local, European and national levels. The programme will be adapted to the cultural contexts of Spain and Lithuania and new guides in both Spanish and Lithuanian will be produced.
Having successfully run facilitator training and a pilot groups in Biovallée and the Drôme valley,the International Handbook is now being adapted by the LaRevueDurable in France and Switzerland to develop a French language project in Europe.
