12:00-14:00 Climate Cafe - Climate Anxiety Workshop

Climate Anxiety Workshop, a private and safe space aimed at relieving your climate anxiety. This event offers a unique format where you can exchange your personal experiences with others and discuss how it feels to live in this challenging era. It's about sharing emotions, thoughts, and experiences without the aim of convincing one another, but rather creating a supportive environment for conversation. By realising that others share similar concerns and emotions, you can feel grounded and reset, aiding in decision-making processes.


What worries you? Are we doing enough? Should we do more? Is politics on the right track? Through sharing, you'll discover that you're not alone in your concerns, which can provide clarity and direction.


The goal of this workshop is to assist students in making their own choices and formulating future ideas. It's about self-exploration beyond just the climate, encompassing personal conversations. By focusing on what you can do and where you can make a difference, you'll find ways to stay positive.


Throughout the workshop, you'll build understanding for each other, strength within yourself, and a shared perspective that emphasizes our commonality: "In reality, we all feel the same." 

Venue: Sustainability Hub, Mandeville Groundfloor
