That wellbeing and resilience are to be taken into account in all aspects of our community life. To encourage greater integration between statutory, voluntary and local businesses supporting health and wellbeing to take on the challenges brought about by the climate emergency.
To gather local people’s perspectives on the climate crisis and facilitate contact with those who are distressed.
The climate emergency arouses fears and worries for many of us locally. Others may have different responses and Climate Cafes can be a supportive meeting place to acknowledge and reflect on our diverse thoughts and feelings.

Climate Cafes - Perspectives on the Climate Crisis
Research needs of local people
Research the needs of local people and explore thoughts and feelings in the face of the Climate Crisis. Local people’s comments can help us to identify common cause where our group and ACE may be able to grow ideas that offer individual and community resilience.
Many responders spoke or wrote of their desire for a community garden for appreciating and working in nature , and as a centre to meet, de-stress, and relax. We hope the views expressed will support ACE in developing such a space in the heart of the community.
Create a directory of wellbeing resources
To create a directory of wellbeing giving information about local resources that can help meet the mental , emotional and physical needs that are being expressed in reaction to the climate crisis.
This will include signposts to existing service, including eco-therapies and outdoor activities that support the environment as well as creative offerings which honour the environment such as dance ,mindfulness, song, grief tending and active hope groups.
