I Can Change Your Mind About... Climate


Can I Change Your Mind About.... Climate

I don't normally write another post so quickly, but wanted to spread this far and wide. If you get this in time, and live in Australia, please have a look at this show. Also there is a survey, so lets use our voices to show politicians who will probably act on these results, that we are concerned about our changing climate and want them to continue to act in our best interest! You can fill in the survey before the show airs...

Thursday 26 April 8.30pm ABC1

A provocative ABC1 event designed to kick-start a new national conversation about the big issue dividing us.

Separated by a generation, and divided by their beliefs, two passionate, intelligent and successful Australians, former senator Nick Minchin and youth activist Anna Rose, go on a journey of mutual discovery to see if they can change each other’s minds about the most divisive issue in Australia today: climate change.

It’s an adventure that will challenge both their beliefs, while giving the Australian public a much-needed opportunity to think afresh about where they stand on the defining issue of our times: what to do about global warming?

In a unique interactive experience over 2 hours of riveting viewing, a one-hour documentary is followed by a live studio audience. At home, and on-line, the national audience joins in, leading to a cliffhanger decision. Have we shifted the national mood? Have we changed people’s minds?

Followed by a Special Edition of Q&A at 9.35pmTAKE THE CLIMATE CHALLENGE
What do you think about Climate Change? What does it say about you?
The data from this survey will be used to determine Australia's differing attitudes to Climate Change.
