Climate Cafes

I will be offering online (via Zoom), monthly climate cafes for anyone interested in spending some time sharing their thoughts and emotions about the climate crisis. Importantly, this is NOT a form of therapy, and does not count as therapy or counselling. Rather, these are supportive groups where people can feel comfortable talking about their feelings without judgment, and to gain some social connection with others around an issue that affects us all.

What is a climate cafe?
