Climate Café (18-30s)

7 September 2023
6:00 pm
9:00 pm

A photograph of magazine collage, there are pictures of rhubarb and outdoors spaces next to images of people holding up protest signs. Around the images words have been written in orange pen like 'wellbeing' and 'together'. There is also more text cut out from a magazine that reads 'connect to the land & yourself'.

We’re delighted to be holding another Climate Café for 18-30 year olds. This nourishing space is where we come together and safely explore our feelings around the ecological crisis as a community of young people.

During the session you’ll be guided through reflective exercises including a sound meditation and journaling to help notice and describe your feelings in relation to the ecological crisis and other social injustices it is interconnected with. In the spirit of collective care and sustaining action for climate justice, we will then hold space to talk about the realities of living as young people in a time of multiple crises and continuing capitalist, colonial and patriarchal legacies of violence. We’ll be bringing our attention to the effects of greenwashing on the personal level as well as considering its role within society at large. It’s a space for listening, talking and expressing what we feel whether that be a rant or rage or maybe it’s curiosity and joy. All emotions are welcome.

After the session we’ll settle into some simple weaving, creating god’s eyes from foraged sticks and thread. Here you’ll have the chance to chat and connect with your city neighbours in more depth. This is a time for sharing resources and actions, perhaps you want to return to earlier conversations, or just have a giggle.

Alongside the craft activity we’ll be sharing a communal vegan meal and fresh herbal tea will be available all evening. You don’t need to bring anything unless you want to, everything will be provided. If you have any allergies or accessibility requirements then please email , thank you.

Please note: our facilitators are not mental health professionals and have varied levels of training facilitated by Climate Psychology Alliance and Grassroots Suicide Prevention.
