Our Listening Bench project (inspired by the Zimbabwean Friendship Bench) offers a friendly empathic ear to anyone worried or upset about the climate crisis. Over the summer you’ll find us on a bench at different open green spaces in Cambridge. Sit down and chat. No booking is required and you can come alone or with other people. Our first sessions have been organised in conjunction with the Wildlife Trust at Trumpington Meadows at the following times:
Sunday 27 June 9.30–11.30 am
Saturday 3 July 9.30-11.30 pm
Sunday 11 July 2-4 pm
Sunday 18 July 9.30-11.30 am
Saturday 7 August 9.30-11.30 am
Sunday 8 August 2-4 pm
You’ll find us near the pond at the Northern end of the reserve.
We will be following Government guidelines on social distancing at all times. This is a pilot project, offered on a voluntary basis by our members.
