The Role of Coaches in Climate Action

11 November, 2022

This event, co-hosted by the IAC and APECS, kicked off the series of Roundtable events by asking:

  • What is the role of coaches, supervisors, mentors, and coaching psychologists in addressing climate change?
  • What role do we, as practitioners, need to step into at this pivotal moment in history?

Coaching’s role is to work with – to support, challenge, develop, and partner with – the stakeholders who contract services and are impacted by those services. There is no coaching without clients. But how equipped are coaches to work in this new context with increasing evidence of climate and ecological crisis, alongside connected economic, political, and social challenges?

Climate Crisis : How Can Coaching Help?

Joint Global Statement on Climate Change: a collaborative discussion

Join us to share your views and questions around climate change and help shape policy and action.All our 6 events are free and open to all coaches. Each event is set in a different time zone to encourage your participation!
In a unique collaboration eight (at the time, now 11) leading coaching, coaching psychology, mentoring and supervision professional bodies have signed a Joint Global Statement on Climate Change committing ourselves to a collective voice and collaborative action on the climate and ecological crisis.

Given our coaching role to develop individuals and organisations in the service of creating social value, we have pledged to work together to play our part in addressing the climate emergency.


We share a commitment to raising awareness and knowledge with our members and to providing safe and challenging spaces for them to reflect on their role and their practice in the light of global challenges.

Together we are hosting open conversations on the Joint Global Statement on 6 dates from early to mid-November to share discussion, inquiry and reflection on these issues. All members of our professional bodies, as well as non-members, are welcome at each and all of these dates. Representatives of the signatory bodies will co-facilitate the sessions.
