December Mother Climate Circle

 A climate circle (modeled after the popular Climate Cafes) is a simple, hospitable, empathetic space where fears & uncertainties about our climate & ecological crisis can be safely expressed. 

These circles are for anyone who identifies as a mother so we can explore the unique environmental and climate concerns arising in the transition to motherhood. *This is a child-friendly circle, so don't cancel if childcare falls through.*

 

 

Why do we need Climate Circles?

We need the kind of exploration that climate circles provide as it becomes more evident that climate and ecological breakdown are not far-away problems but a clear and present danger to our own safety and wellbeing. People increasingly need to talk about what our changing world means for them in terms of impacts at personal, family and societal level. We need to imagine it in some detail so as to be able to think about it constructively and clear-sightedly, and to explore some complex feelings and thoughts which may often be taboo and hard to talk about.

What happens during a Climate Circle?

The focus of discussion is participants’ thoughts and feelings about the climate and ecological crisis. There are no guest speakers and no talks, and it is an advice-free zone. Whilst the climate and ecological crisis is usually the main focus of the café we realise too, in these exceptional times, that COVID19 is another life-threatening preoccupation and needs a space to be explored - and this can happen here too.

Monthly dates are listed on the main event page and are open to anyone worried about the climate and ecological crisis who identifies as a mother and/or mothering. Gender inclusive.

A Zoom link will be sent to registered participants a few days prior to event.

If the date of your choice is fully booked please join the waiting list as places do become available at short notice and I endeavour to hold additional conversations when I can. This also helps me understand the level of demand. Thank you.


 

Participants will receive an ecotherapeutic invitation following their participation in the event to help process the theme(s) of the conversation.
