Many of the radio programmes I host are focused on the individual or personal things we can do to make a difference. Individual action is important for many reasons – its often fun, its satisfying and all those actions add up especially when others copy you and start doing it too. However when it comes to the big issues, like climate change, it is beneficial at many levels to find a group of like minded others where you can support each other. When we work together we can achieve so much more than when we work alone.
Seniors Climate Action Network, based here in Dunedin, is one such group that aims to raise awareness of climate change among senior citizens and to work towards a low carbon future.
On this show, I chat with Pat Scott and Donna Peacock, from Seniors Climate Action Network about their group. We also chat about their upcoming learning conference around climate change that they have organized for members of U3A. (U3A stands for University of a Third Age – an international organization, and its aims are the education and stimulation of retired members of the community — those in the “third age” of life).
