Edinburgh Climate Café (Online)
November 16, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Please join us to sit and listen to one another describe the feelings we have 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 conversation where you can reflect on your feelings without being bounced into action. This is one way of coping with the challenges facing us all.
This cafe will take place on Zoom Café, so please feel free to have some coffee or cake at home while you meet with us virtually.
More about Edinburgh Climate Café
We are a small group of facilitators based in Edinburgh, Scotland, where we organise in-person events in addition to the ones we run online. We have broad-ranging experience of group facilitation and have received training from the Climate Psychology Alliance to facilitate Climate Cafés.
Some Climate Cafés are organised on a regular basis, or as a series. Ours are intended as one-off, standalone events, not a series (although you are welcome to come to as many as you wish). We organise them around our current availability. Our Eventbrite organiser page contains details of all of the Cafés we currently have planned: https://www.eventbrite.com/o/40125112323

More about Climate Cafés
The concept of a Climate Café as an advice-free space for discussion has been developed and promoted by the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) among other groups. You can read CPA member Rebecca Nestor’s description of the format here: https://rebeccanestor.co.uk/2020/08/10/what-exactly-is-a-climate-cafe/
