🎤 Messaging Guidelines for Paint the Streets

This topic is for discussing and refining the messaging guidelines for Paint the Streets.
The current messaging guidelines are contained in the “Messaging” section of the Paint the Streets Australia Guide.

These messaging guidelines have been put together by @JaneM, with input from @Tee, @Dr.DML and other rebels.

Sounding the alarm: talking about existential threat … and rebellion
Friday 26 June 5pm – 6pm AEST. Zoom presentations and discussion

Fear does work! This event will cover the research that backs strong climate emergency messaging and Roger Hallam’s approach to Extinction Rebellion talks and media events.

Jane Morton, clinical psychologist and author of Don’t mention the emergency? will summarise the research that backs the power of emotionally congruent messages that include a personally relevant threat plus proportionate action.

Roger Hallam, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion, and author of Common Sense for the 21st Century: Only non-violent rebellion can stop climate breakdown and social collapse, will explore XR’s use of simple and clear, but intensely emotional communication.

You will need to RSVP via this link to receive the Zoom call details. There will be a limit of 100 people on the call.
