Dear ASCers,


Are you looking for a professional transformational experience? 


The Communicating climate change series workshops are delivering even more
than what they promised. Those who attended the second workshop left
energised and enthusiastic about using practical new ways of thinking.
Several people attended based on the strength of the first workshop and are
looking forward to the third. 


This is your opportunity to pick up skills to communicate for action. The
workshop is in the context of climate change issues but the concepts are far
more widely applicable. 


I encourage you to register for the next workshop for Communicating for
Action with Kath Fisher which is on next week. For the value of the skills
you'll gain this interactive learning experience is amazingly


Spaces are limited and if you are keen to attend book now. The workshop
offers incredible value for ASC members and is a clear enticement to join
ASC to get the most out of the discount. 


Communicating Climate Change Workshop Series 

Workshop 3: Communicating for Action with Kath Fisher (8 September 2010)

(Workshop 1 Communicating the Science with Jenni Metcalfe, was held on 11
August 2010 and received very positive feedback from attendees. Workshop 2:
Communicating the Story with Sohail Inayatullah was on 25 August 2010 and
gave attendees new approaches to communication.)


In Workshop 3: Communicating for Action with Kath Fisher, the 3 hour
interactive session will help you to communicate for action. The workshop
draws on Kath's research interests and practical skills in community
consultation processes. She will deliver a hands-on tools focused approach
to engagement, with a particular focus on groups who are traditionally
disengaged. Dr Kath Fisher is the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at
Southern Cross University and also works as a consultant facilitator to
government and non-government organisations. Kath combines her experience in
facilitation and group processes and practical skills in community
consultation processes that incorporate deliberative processes, particularly
citizens' juries with her 30 years teaching in the areas of politics,
sociology, economics, participatory democracy, group processes,
communication and social research.


Cost: $110 for IAP2, AAEE and ASC members, students and NGOs, $220 other
non-members (incl GST). The workshops are three hours long and there are two
sessions each day. Cost includes morning or afternoon tea. 


Venue: Powerhouse Museum, Board Room, level 5 (this is a great venue)
