Event description
An invitation to explore and relate to the roles and perspectives appearing for us in relation to our changing climate and colonisation

About this event

Today’s climate change impacts are magnified by historical environmental injustice and colonial legacies, which have heightened the vulnerability of human and other living systems.

Often, the information we receive in the media and online about colonialism and the climate emergency is simple and polarised - inviting a binary reaction. The issues are more complex.

Polarisation can generate apathy and hopelessness about the future. If you are interested in participating in a deeper dialogue - about the complexity of our history and current situation regarding climate and colonisation, join us for this forum bringing together people from diverse backgrounds, to explore this complex topic together.

Guest speakers will present short introductions, followed by a facilitated conversation we can all take part in; welcoming views and insights from all, noticing and learning about the feelings and ideas that emerge.

There will be a space for smaller group conversations as well as participation in breakout groups to support the opportunity for you to speak, be heard and to connect.

Processwork Uk and Processwork Scotland is running this Open Forum as part of a series to invite a public conversation on the complex issues to do with our changing climate. The forums take place in the lead up to the COP26 climate conference that will be held in Glasgow in November 2021.

The forums will explore the relation of our changing climate with: 'Inner Resilience and Emotional Awareness', ‘Our Changing Climate and Colonisation', 'Climate Migration and Scotland's evolving identity’, and ‘Climate Justice: How do we build a fair future?'.

An Open Forum is a facilitated public conversation enabling an exchange of multiple perspectives including people and groups receiving least exposure at the collective level.

The forums will take place online (Zoom) and are free to attend. As the events are organised on a voluntary basis, we welcome donations to go towards our speakers and the running of the series.

If you have any access requirements you would like to make us aware of, please let us know via the organiser contact button below. We will do our best to meet these requirements where we can, and to put these in place for future events.
