WHAT NOW? WHAT NEXT? A SMALL GROUP FOR THINKING ABOUT OUR FUTURE

To download this poster click here

For people who want to go on thinking about the emotional impact of climate change, Cambridge Climate Therapists will be offering a small group for thinking about our future.

As the pandemic continues to impact on our lives in so many ways, the climate emergency is presenting us with an alarming picture of the road ahead. Some of us might absorb ourselves in activism regardless or others retreat into despair or denial. But wherever we find ourselves the old adage still stands, talking with others helps.
Cambridge Climate Therapists are planning a group to be held weekly over a period of 9 weeks where people can share their concerns hopes and fears. It will be facilitated by two experienced therapists. We aim to start the group early in
the new year, 2022.

CLIMATE LISTENING BENCH DATES IN NOVEMBER 2021

As part of a response to the climate change talks at COP 26, Cambridge Climate Therapists invite you to join them on the CLIMATE LISTENING BENCH on the following dates.

At New Square, Cambridge, between 10.00 and 12.00

Sunday 7 November

Sunday 14 November

Sunday 21 November

Sunday 28 November.

The CLIMATE LISTENING BENCH offers you an opportunity to talk to specially trained ‘climate listeners’ from local voluntary organisation Cambridge Climate Therapists. We offer a friendly, empathic ear to anyone who would like to talk about their climate concerns.

We all share a roller-coaster of emotions when we become aware of the seriousness of the climate crisis. Fear, anxiety and a sense of powerlessness can feel overwhelming. COP26 has brought the climate crisis home to lots of people but not everyone has someone they can talk to. Many people are feeling anxious and unsure about what to do. We know that 75% of children and young people in a recent international survey are particularly fearful about their future and the future of the Earth.

“Having someone listen to you,” adds Ro Randall, founder member, “is really useful. It brings you out of isolation and helps you realise that there is somewhere beyond the awful feelings, that there is lots you can do about the climate crisis and that there is a community of people to do it with.”
