We’re back with another Climate Café at ONCA. But this time it’s specifically tailored to folks between the ages of 18 to 30 years. Gather with us the night after the summer solstice to reflect, discuss and witness each other as we collectively move through a time of huge planetary change.

During the session you’ll be guided through meditative and reflective activities like journaling to explore emotions relating to climate and any other social injustices it interconnects with. In the spirit of collective care and sustaining action we’ll delve into the realities of existing as young people in a time of multiple crises and continuing colonial legacies of systemic violence. We’ll use a mixture of writing and talking as ways to express our lived experiences, concerns and desires to find common ground as a community of city neighbours. This is a space as much for joy as it is for rage or confusion and anything in between.

After the session, we’ll create a collage together using magazines, newspapers, natural and recycled materials. Here you’ll have the opportunity to get creative, chat and connect in more depth. This is a time to share resources and actions, perhaps you want to return to conversations from the earlier rounds! Alongside this will be a communal meal of seasonal salads, breads and fresh herbal tea.

You don’t need to bring anything with you unless you want to. All materials will be provided.

We’re asking for a donation of £2 per ticket to cover the ingredients for a shared meal however if this makes the event inaccessible to you then please select a free ticket.

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