Deep canvassing is the most effective and lasting way to help shift internal conflict in an individual on a controversial issue. But how can one 20 minute conversation with a stranger make such a big impact? And how can this make a difference in public opinion on climate policies and the climate movement? The team at Neighbours United will solve this mystery and share their key learnings from their award winning deep canvassing program that has shifted the beliefs of more than 1 in 3 Canadians.
Neighbours United is the first organization in Canada using deep canvassing, and the first organization anywhere to run a complete volunteer-based climate deep canvassing program. They are committed to working collaboratively with other organizations to share learnings.
At the end of the presentation, participants will know:
- What deep canvassing is
- What deep canvassing can achieve
- How deep canvassing has been applied successfully by Neighbours United
- An overview of how to deep canvass on climate solutions
