Living with the Climate Crisis

Living with the Climate Crisis.

This is a major new project being developed in conjunction with the Climate Psychology Alliance. We are writing psychologically based materials for use in groups aimed at helping people move from climate distress to action in whatever forums feel right for them – community, political, personal, workplace. The pilot group has been running May-July and the materials will be available in the autumn under Creative Commons Licensing to people and organisations wishing to use them. More information will follow

What now, what next?

This is a group for people who wish to meet with others to explore and reflect on their personal experience and feelings about the climate and biodiversity crises. Details of the next group will appear on the Home Page and on the Events Page.

What now? What next? A small group for thinking about our future.

Green Week COP 26 at Wolfson College 18th-25th October

We will be bringing our Listening Bench to Wolfson College on Monday 18th October as part of their Green Week/COP26 event.

Our Climate Listening Bench project, inspired by the Zimbabwean Friendship Bench initiative, offers a friendly empathic ear to anyone worried or upset about the climate crisis. Over the summer you may have seen a couple of our trained psychotherapists sitting on a bench at different open green spaces in Cambridge.  During Green Week, the Listening Bench will be available at various times (to be posted) at a suitable site, Covid safe, within Wolfson College. Please join us on the Listening Bench – no need to book, just sit down and chat.

And on Friday 22nd October from 10.30 to 12.30, Ro Randall and Daniela Fernandez Catherall will be offering a workshop “Coping with the Climate Crisis” in the large seminar room at Wolfson College.
