Climate Change Workshops should be a positive, safe and inclusive space for all. I therefore ask all participants, including workshop facilitators and organisers to follow a code of conduct. By booking for Climate Change Workshops you are agreeing to follow this.
Everyone is welcome at Climate Change Workshops. I aim for this event to be a safer space for all attendees, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, age, sexual orientation, intersex variations, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, political affiliation or faith.
Please avoid making assumptions or negative comments about others and respect people’s genders. If you are unsure of what pronoun (eg: he, she, they) to use, check if they have put their pronoun in their on-screen name or ask.
Please remember that each person is at a different stage of awareness about various issues and do not assume that people are being malicious if something goes wrong. Correct them when necessary or report any issues to the organisers.
- Everyone at Climate Change Workshops has the right to say no to any activity at any stage. This includes any kind of chat, participation in activities or discussions, disclosing personal information, or discussing any topic.
- Please ask before Direct Messaging anyone on the forum. If they refuse don’t ask them again, and if someone asks you to leave them alone, do so.
- If a session or activity is not working for you, remember that you are always free to leave and have a break, or join the general chat on our forum.
Privacy & Confidentiality
- Please respect people’s privacy.
- Do not record, screenshot or copy any of the content or chat from Climate Change Workshops sessions or forum.
- Everything shared within workshops, with the exception of information provided by the facilitator, should be treated as confidential and not discussed outside of the event or on the forum without permission. This includes all social media, external message boards and forums.
- When interacting online or in person, be mindful of what information you reveal about yourself and others.
- Public posts in the forum are visible to everyone on the Internet, including AI bots and search engines. Most categories are only visible to registered members of the forum and private.
Discrimination & Stereotyping
Climate Change Workshops should be a safe space for all attendees, regardless of their ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, age, relationship type or lifestyle. Bigoted behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated.
Don’t make comments or assumptions, or stereotype people on the basis of their skin colour, physical features, race, accent, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual orientation, disability, religion or belief, age, relationship type or lifestyle.
Climate Change Workshops aims to be accessible and welcoming to everyone, whatever their access needs. Participants can help with this by:
- Respect requests that will help make Climate Change Workshops more accessible, such as speaking one at a time.
- Remember you don’t know by looking how able or not someone is
- Don’t offer medical or alternative therapy advice
- Don’t ask intrusive questions like ‘What’s wrong with you?’
No alcohol is allowed at Climate Change Workshops except in specific social sessions which will be clearly labelled. No one who is visibly drunk will be allowed entry.
Most Climate Change Workshops is available for under 18s. If you are under 18 and like to participate in a session that is not specifically designed for your age group (e.g. a workshop at a school), please attend with a parent or guardian over the age of 18.
Please refrain from using strong language and or swearing during the workshops.
Support & Feedback
Should you feel that a behaviour breaks this Code of Conduct, you may speak directly to the people involved and/or you can email [email protected] (this address will not be checked during an event.) In person, you can approach one of the organisers.
I take all kinds of discrimination seriously and respect that not all discrimination is overt. Please report microaggressions, actions and comments that make you feel uncomfortable. If you do not wish actions to be taken by the organising team, that is fine. It will however help me to keep our Code of Conduct up to date and ensure that I can take steps to avoid future issues at my events. I take all complaints and comments seriously.
Breaches of this Code of Conduct or reasonable requests will, in most cases, be met with a warning from a member of the organising team.
If warnings are ignored, or in the event of serious misconduct, I reserve the right to ask anyone to leave all or part of Climate Change Workshops and or online forums.
The organiser's decision is final.
Thank you, Axel.
