Climate Fresk Workshop in Vientiane | Facilitated by Shalyn Wilkins and Chris Lucas

The concern regarding climate change remains unabated, particularly within the current era characterized by an exponential growth in technology and information. Nevertheless, the level of awareness of this issue has yet to reach a threshold that catalyzes proactive engagement on an individual level.

To get solutions and take action, understanding climate science is key to creating change and knowing the best steps to take. Based on a 42-card game developed from the scientific reports of IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change), Climate Fresk encourages the participants to understand the causes and consequences of climate change, as well as its impacts on human life.

The association of Climate Fresk is based in France (est. 2018 by Cédric Ringenbach), and to date, over 1 million people have participated in a Climate Fresk workshop globally.

Shalyn Wilkins and Chris Lucas, two passionate individuals based in the UK, are actively involved in the climate tech industry. With a deep-rooted commitment to addressing environmental challenges, they have taken on the role of facilitators for the transformative Climate Fresk workshops.

But their journey doesn't stop there. Embarking on an extraordinary adventure, Shalyn and Chris are currently cycling through the breathtaking landscapes of Southeast Asia for a remarkable six-month journey. With their hearts set on making a positive impact, Shalyn and Chris have set out to spread the message of climate consciousness by organizing Climate Fresk workshops in every country they visit along their route. Their journey is a testament to their unwavering dedication to our planet and the belief that every step, or rather, every pedal, counts.

Prior to their ambitious tour, they have already conducted six successful workshops and engaged in various Climate Fresk activities back in their hometown of Bristol. As facilitators, Shalyn and Chris embody the spirit of innovation and collaboration, fostering an environment where ideas flourish and solutions are born.

In addition, the workshop will also be supported and co-facilitated in both Lao and English by Vilayvone Sisavath - a professional Environmental Consultant from Laos.

Vilayvone Sisavath, a talented Environmental Consultant from Laos, will also join us as a co-facilitator in both Lao and English for this event. Holding a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Sciences, Vilayvone contributes a wealth of knowledge from her work in the environmental technology sector, with a strong focus on climate change solutions. Her presence will undoubtedly enrich the workshop experience for all participants.
