Hosting & Facilitating a Climate Café - workshop

Sat 11th March 2 - 5pm UK time

It is essential to have attended a climate café before undertaking this training. More detail below.

What is the purpose of this workshop?

Climate Psychology Alliance members are establishing climate cafés in communities across the UK, and we want to see them taking place in every location. 

This workshop will support participants to develop the confidence to set up their own Climate Café. It will include a short taster climate café, the psycho-social principles on which Climate Cafés are based, building a toolkit of practical resources, and a discussion of the organisation and facilitation of Climate Cafés. 

Are there any requirements to attend?

Yes. You do not need a therapeutic background to take this workshop but it is essential that you have attended a climate café as a participant before doing this training.

This will need to be a climate café that:

  • focuses on feelings rather than action
  • is clear that it is not a space for discussing or debating climate policy, climate science or climate action.

If you cannot get a place on one of ours, an internet search or a browse on Eventbrite should produce some. You can check with the organiser if it meets the criteria above or get in touch with us. Please do join our waiting lists as spaces regularly become available at short notice.

All our climate cafés are listed on our events calendar or you can go directly to our Eventbrite page here. CPA Scotland also holds regular climate cafés both online and in-person which are schedule in our calendar and you can also find here.

Who is running it?

Rebecca Nestor, doctoral researcher at the Tavistock Centre, who has been facilitating Climate Cafés in Oxford for two years

Gillian Broad, professor of social work at the University of Sussex and an experienced facilitator of reflective groups including Climate Cafés.

When is it and how much does it cost?

Sat 11th March 2 - 5pm UK time

Cost: £20 standard rate & £5 concessionary rate (for students and those on low income).
