Climate Change, Interpretation, and Hope: How to talk about the elephant in the room
Best practices, strategies, and tactics for interpreters
In recent years Interpreters' work has become more challenging, as we increasingly come to understand that climate change poses a real threat to nature - indeed, to much more than just nature. Scary stuff, indeed. In this workshop, you will hear some good news on this front from experienced educator and interpreter Gareth Thomson, who will share some best practices in climate education and interpretation, and suggest ways in which you can talk about this with your clients in a positive and constructive way. You'll have a chance to discuss this topic in a small group session with your colleagues, and you'll leave with some strategies and tactics you can use in your work to give your clients the best gift possible and a sense of optimism and hope for the future.
