About this Event

6:45pm - Coffee & Chat

7:00 - The psychology of apathy about climate change by Linda & Stewart Shuttleworth

Then group sessions - Climate Action Ideas.

It’s apathy not denial that’s the main issue. But this climate apathy can be overcome if it’s tackled in the right way. The first step is to understand the psychology behind apathy. Climate change is exactly the kind of threat our minds aren’t equipped to worry about. It seems distant, happening mostly in the future and to other people. The widespread tendency to think “I’ll be OK”, known as optimism bias, makes it easier for people to assume such distant problems won’t affect them.
