Climate Cafés offer something different from the usual gatherings of people with interests in climate change. They are facilitated – so you can be sure that there will be space for you to speak. They are not designed to recruit you to do anything or to put you under any pressure. The idea behind them is that talking about climate change is really important – but it is often made more difficult by our feelings of guilt that we are not doing enough, or frustration that others are not doing enough. So Climate Cafés provide a space in which we don’t talk about what we or others are doing or should be doing. We just talk about climate change and how it is making us think and feel.
Everyone is welcome. There’s no charge. We provide the tea, coffee and cake! Climate Cafés are not drop-in events, so please try to arrive in time for the 4pm start (though we won’t turn you away if you’re a few minutes late!).
Everyone who is concerned about the climate crisis is welcome at Climate Cafés, though we don’t advise children attending.
This session is facilitated by Rebecca Nestor and Raia Prokhovnik.
We hope you can join us! In the interest of limiting the scope 3 carbon emissions from this event, please consider public transport or active travel like walking on cycling to travel here, if that is a possibility for you.
Thank you to the Old Fire Station for their support with this event.
