Event description
In this talk aimed at activists, you will find out how to help people make kinder choices, using the notion of social and cultural myths.

About this Event

This talk offered as a part of VeganFest Tasmania.

People resist change in all aspects of their lives, not just veganism and non-speciesism. As animal activists, we become frustrated that, after sharing the inherent cruelty of people’s choices, they still don’t change. It is essential to understand the unquestioned assumptions that underpin their decision-making. By using the notion of social and cultural myths you can more easily break the trance and help people make kinder choices.

In this interactive talk, Clare Mann will examine how applying and understanding the myths that underpin people’s behaviour, you can work to reducing their resistance and increase the chance of them changing. You will leave this workshop feeling more empowered in your activism.
