Event description
This workshop will support participants to develop the confidence to set up their own climate café.

About this Event

It will cover the psychology of the climate and ecological emergency, a taster Climate Café, building a toolkit of practical resources and a discussion of the organisation and facilitation of Climate Cafés.

A Climate Café is a simple, hospitable, empathetic process that offers a space where fears and uncertainties about our climate crisis can be safely expressed, leading over time to greater emotional resilience and understanding.

We need the kind of exploration that Climate Cafés provide as it becomes more evident that climate change is not a far-away problem but a clear and present danger to our own safety and wellbeing. People increasingly need to talk about what our changing climate means for them in terms of impacts at personal, family and societal level. We need to imagine it in some detail so as to be able to think about it constructively and clear-sightedly, and to explore some complex feelings and thoughts which may often be taboo and hard to talk about.

The focus of discussion is participants’ thoughts and feelings about the climate crisis. There are no guest speakers and no talks, and it is an advice-free zone. This is psychologically important, helping to create the supportive atmosphere.

Climate Psychology Alliance members are establishing climate cafés in communities across the UK, and we want to see them taking place in every location.

This workshop will support participants to develop the confidence to set up their own Climate Café. It will include a short taster climate café, the psycho-social principles on which Climate Cafés are based, building a toolkit of practical resources, and a discussion of the organisation and facilitation of Climate Cafés.

Facilitators:

Gillian Ruch, professor of social work at the University of Sussex and an experienced facilitator of reflective groups including Climate Cafés

Rebecca Nestor, doctoral researcher at the Tavistock Centre, who has been facilitating Climate Cafés in Oxford for two years

Advance registration is essential.

Details: Tuesday 19th January 2021, 17.00 - 20.30 UK time (with a 30-minute break in the middle), on Zoom.

Cost: £15 for CPA members, £20 for non-members.
