Our Climate Cafes are now monthly. These provide a supportive space in which to talk about how the climate crisis is affecting us – without pressure to act. The cafes will continue to be facilitated by Rebecca Nestor, now joined as co-facilitator by Alison Hill.
We think our Climate Cafes 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 we 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.
Our next cafe is at 15.30 to 17.00 on Sunday 23 February and you can sign up here. Future cafes are on Sundays 22 March, 19 April, 10 May and 14 June. You can RSVP on the Climate Cafes Meetup page. The climate cafes are held at the Bicycle Shed, 204-206 Banbury Road (opposite Thorncliffe Road and next to Summertown Cycles). Please arrive in good time for the group to start at 15.30.
