Climate Coaching Action Day, 2023

The fourth Climate Coaching Action Day takes place on 2nd March, 2023

This initiative was launched in 2020 by Coaching at Work, but although we mark it, too, it was always intended to be an invitation for others to embrace, as have organisations, including the Climate Coaching Alliance (CCA), professional coaching and coaching psychology bodies, coach training organisations, including the Academy of Executive Coaching, International Academy for Professional Development, Centre for Coaching, and Positivity Coaching.
