PEOPLE making new year resolutions are being asked to consider getting serious about climate change.

The Dorset Climate Change Coalition is offering two free speaker training courses thanks to a grant from Dorset Strategic Partnership.

Attendees will learn how to talk about climate change in order to inspire their friends, colleagues and family to reduce their carbon footprints.

The two sessions are in Shaftesbury on Wednesday, January 21, from 1.30pm to 4.30pm and in Wimborne on Saturday, January 24, from 9.30am to 12.30pm.
