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.
