A Climate Café creates a simple, reflective, empathic space where fears and uncertainties about the climate crisis can be safely expressed and held. There are no guest speakers or lectures and the café remains an advice-free zone. Based on the model of death cafes, climate cafes have been increasingly utilized to help a variety of individuals and communities find ways to face and bear the unsettling realities of the planetary crisis.


 Zoom login information will be emailed to you once you register.
