Edinburgh Climate Café
October 5, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
A Climate Café is an opportunity to give ourselves time to sit, perhaps with a hot drink and a slice of cake, and describe our thoughts and feelings about the crises of our ecology.
Climate Cafés are bounded by confidentiality although they are not therapy sessions. We invite you to take part in a warm, hospitable, facilitated conversation where you can reflect on your and others’ feelings without being bounced into action. This is one way of coping with the challenges facing us all.
This Climate Café will be held at the Salisbury Centre, an inclusive community space just east of the Meadows in Edinburgh. Tea and hot drinks will be available from the Salisbury Centre’s kitchen (small donation suggested), and the facilitators will provide some biscuits and snacks. You are welcome to bring your own too!
More about Climate Cafés
The concept of a Climate Café as an advice-free space for discussion is promoted by the Climate Psychology Alliance among other groups.
