About

Join science and climate communicator and presenter, Lee Constable at the launch of her new book, How to Save the Whole Blinkin' Planet: A Renewable Energy Adventure!

This fireside chat and Q&A hosted by climate and mental health journalist, Elfy Scott, will cover topics such as:

- How do we communicate about climate + energy with the whole blinkin' planet?

- Avoiding eco-anxiety when talking to kids (or anyone)

- Humour for climate conversations

- Why tell a climate, science and tech story as a superhero adventure?

- Learnings re waste and sustainability education from book one - 'How to Save the Whole STINKIN' Planet: A Garbological Adventure' (eg. many of the responses I got were from grown ups who learned a lot which was a stealthy aim of the first book and Blinkin' Planet too!)

- Combatting biased fossil fuel sponsored energy education (a form of greenwashing)The audience will also be encouraged to bring their own burning questions. While the book itself is for kids 8-12yr old, this discussion will be engaging for adults.

Following the Q&A people will be welcome to purchase copies of the book and have them signed.
