Consultancy

Rosemary Randall helps organizations deliver on the deeper sustainability agenda and is a popular speaker on the psychology of climate change.

Whether you are a community organization struggling with outreach and communication or a business thinking about employee engagement I can help you understand the deeper dynamics of behaviour change and advise on programmes that will give you real leverage. My approach is based on paying attention to the emotional dimension of engagement: treating people as people, listening, understanding, developing participation and ownership of change.

Workshops – on understanding audiences, talking one-to-one, explaining technical issues, working beyond the comfort zone, loss, anxiety and change, strategies for communication and engagement.

Consultancy – individualized programmes to help you deliver the change you want.

Carbon Conversations is the award-winning carbon-reduction programme I designed for community groups which is proving increasingly popular with business. Judged ‘one of the 20 best climate change solutions’ at the 2009 Manchester festival it helps individuals halve their carbon footprints through paying attention to their emotional conflicts and deeper motivations. See www.carbonconversations.org for details of the programme and contact me directly if you would like me to bring it to your organisation.

    Dear Rosemary

    I am a researcher for the Centre for Alternative Technology (CAT) working on their Zero Carbon Britain: Making It Happen project http://zerocarbonbritain.org/making-it-happen This is a one year project (to Oct 2016) which involves looking at research from various social sciences on the barriers to a zero carbon future and ways to overcome them.

    We published a report on our initial findings to coincide with the Paris climate talks which can be downloaded here:
    http://zerocarbonbritain.org/images/pdfs/Zero%20Carbon%20-%20Making%20it%20happen%20-%20initial%20findings.pdf

    This very preliminary review is not attempting to be comprehensive but is more a way of inviting comments and ideas from people working in the different social sciences as well as other experts and practitioners.

    As this covers your area of interest as well as mentioning carbon conversations, we thought you might be interested in the project. I did hear you speak at the Climate Psychology Conference and tried to get to speak to you but you were always otherwise engaged.

    Please get in touch if you have any suggestions.

    Many thanks,

    best,

    Lisa Hopkinson
