This session will be hosted specifically for coaches, mental health professionals and facilitators who are experiencing strong emotions about climate change and looking to connect with others facing similar experiences, but everyone is welcome.

What is a Climate Café?

Climate Cafe is a warm and welcoming space, with facilitators, where you and others who are concerned about the climate crisis and related issues share your feelings and thoughts. It’s a haven from busyness and isolation. A space for you to come as you are, share as much or as little as you're comfortable with.

A Climate Café is not a space for planning climate action or discussing climate policy. While these actions are very important, they are not the focus of our Climate Cafés. We are taking this approach because we know that sharing feelings in a supportive setting helps to build our resilience during this confusing and difficult time.

There are only 12 spots available so be sure to register here to hold your spot. Once you register we will send you an email closer to the date with the link to our online platform.

Note: we always try our best to cultivate a safe space for our participants in Climate Cafés. Therefore, we kindly ask you to arrive at the session on time, and we will have to deny any admissions that are later than 7:15 EDT in order to provide you and other participants a meaningful and engaging experience. In case you cannot make it on time to this Climate Café, we always welcome you to sign up for our future sessions.
