You represent the values, attitudes, and beliefs of your community. To communicate most effectively about climate, you should start with people and stay with people. Connect on common values that are personally relevant. Inspire and empower. Be solutions-focused. And include at least one powerful fact from a trusted messenger.
A compelling climate speech can feature your progress on the Path to Positive and how it fits into future civic plans. In your speeches, connect how your plans are built upon values shared by your community, such as a commitment to social and economic responsibility. Additionally, a strong speech instills hope. This means empowering people today to take action – as individuals or as a community – to become part of the solution.
