Join D&D Climate Action Network Launch Call Nov. 17

NCDD is proud to be supporting an important new project being led by NCDD supporting member Linda Ellinor of the Dialogue Group aimed at connecting D&D professionals who are concerned about climate change. The network will launch with a conference call on Nov. 17 from 2-4pm PST for folks interested in being part of the core group, and its work could be quite impactful with the right supporters. Learn more about the network and how to get involved in Linda’s announcement below.

Announcing the D&D Climate Action Network (D&D CAN)

First Teleconference Call: November 17th, 2015

Are you a D&D practitioner or facilitator concerned about climate change? Are you looking to connect with like-minded peers who wish to use participatory processes or conversational leadership in helping to meet this challenge?

We invite you to join this NCDD-supported D&D Climate Action Network. Our goal is to help each other work more strategically within groups we are already involved in and to explore synergies between us for new actions and groups we might work with. We aim to build a community of practice that fosters mutual learning, sharing, and inspires collaboration around the complexities of climate change.

Initially, we will hold monthly 90-minute to 2-hour teleconference calls* using Zoom technology (a more advanced form of Skype) and communicating in between these times via Ning to share resources and advance our connections.

In these early meetings, we expect to focus primarily on building relationships with each other and exploring our respective work and aspirations. As we develop, we may dive more deeply into specific subjects and opportunities for action, some of us thinking, studying and strategizing together, inviting speakers, etc. We will basically allow ourselves to self-organize around our unfolding interests.

If you are interested in joining this new network, we ask that you contact either Linda Ellinor at lellinor25[at]gmail[dot]com (707 217-6675) or Marti Roach at martiroach[at]gmail[dot]com (925 963-9631).

Our first teleconference call is scheduled for November 17th from 2 – 4pm PST.* We are limiting the initial calls to the first 16 people who sign up to help establish a core network, so please contact us soon to express your interest.

*Please note that while we will keep the formal teleconference calls to 90 minutes, you might want to plan for a total of 2 hours to allow for some follow-up networking after the formal call is over.

Co-hosting team: Linda Ellinor, co-founder of The Dialogue Group/Senior Associate with Applied Concepts Group; Marti Roach, Marti Roach Consulting, Rosa Zubizaretta, DiaPraxis, Nancy Glock-Grueneich, V.P. Research Intellitics and CII Fellow; Sharon Joy Kleitsch, The Connections Partners; Tim Bonneman, CEO and President of Intellitics.
