The KTCC Toolkit
The Kitchen Table Climate Conversation online toolkit includes a guide for facilitators, a suggested agenda and a deck of presenter slides. The current slides were updated in the summer of 2020. They are fully editable and contain links to many current resources.
Sections of the KTCC
Explore resources for the different sections of the toolkit separately below and choose the best approach for you and your conversation.
Science and Impacts
Science of Social Change
Research shows that change takes place in group discussions. It also shows that if enough of us adopt a change or engage in an activity, it catches on. We have collective strength when we work
Emotions and Expression
Areas for Change
What needs to change to ensure a livable future for all? If we know what is currently harming people and the planet, we are closer to figuring out how best
Actions and Solutions
What's Next? Supporting One Another

Climate Fast has prepared the KTCC Facilitator Guide and Presenter Slides as a resource to support and encourage climate activists to engage with others and build the growing climate justice movement to prompt action on the climate emergency. The Guide and the Slides contain materials created by Climate Fast as well as materials created by third parties. Climate Fast encourages you to use these resources for the purposes for which they were created and request that they be properly cited and credited, or get additional permission from third parties, if needed. You are welcome to adapt materials created by Climate Fast to better serve their stated purpose. Neither Climate Fast nor the KTCC team is responsible for the way any resources are adapted or used.
