Action on issues of ecological significance often requires changes in personal behaviour and political consensus on technologies to support these changes. Unfortunately, many consultation processes only engage a narrow range of stakeholders, usually those professionally engaged or already active on a range of community issues. This paper illustrates how people who are 'hard to reach' or seen as 'apathetic' might be engaged using 'action-conversations' that explore the social climate for action and how scientific/technical messages can be framed in the language of the community.
