Our global climate crisis is a massive problem in its own right. But it’s also the symptom of a much bigger crisis; one of human conscience and of consciousness. To get through it, we must be willing to overhaul the social, political, and economic systems that got us into this mess in the first place. This means radically rethinking every aspect of our daily lives. And we need to do it fast. I developed Climate 7 to assist us in that process.
My name is Dr Rachel Forgasz. I am the teacher/researcher behind Climate 7. A few years ago, I started wondering about the whole point of Education in the context of global climate crisis. Climate 7 was my response. Climate 7 can be used by children and adults; individually or together; in schools, families, couples, co-workers, friends, and communities.
The 7 Ways provide a framework for transforming the underlying attitudes, values, and beliefs that drive our individual actions and our collective systems. They are a gentle invitation to inner adaptation.
7 Ways in 7 Days further supports the change process by offering us a structure to practice each of the 7 ways in a weekly routine of focused actions. 7 Ways in the Curriculum offers suggestions for teachers and students interested in a whole school approach for implementing Climate 7. New resources are always being added.
I use the Climate 7 framework with schools, local councils, and community groups seeking to embrace the kind of change our world requires of us. I provide workshops, webinars, and bespoke programs and resources. Send me a message if you’d like any support developing a Climate 7 Community.
I am a settler Australian living on the unceded lands of the Gulidjan and Gadubanud nations. I am deeply humbled by their enduring connection to country over tens of thousands of years and pay my respects to elders past, present, and emerging. I am committed to dismantling colonial oppression and acknowledge the fundamental connection between First Nations justice and climate justice across the globe.
