A Climate Café is an opportunity to give ourselves time to sit, perhaps with a hot drink and a slice of cake, and describe our thoughts and feelings about the crises of our ecology.
Climate Cafés are bounded by confidentiality although they are not therapy sessions. We invite you to take part in a warm, hospitable, facilitated conversation where you can reflect on your and others’ feelings without being bounced into action. This is one way of coping with the challenges facing us all.
This Climate Café will be held at the Salisbury Centre, an inclusive community space just east of the Meadows in Edinburgh. Tea and hot drinks will be available from the Salisbury Centre’s kitchen (small donation suggested), and the facilitators will provide some biscuits and snacks. You are welcome to bring your own too!
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. You can find out more about it here.
This event is free and anyone aged 18 years and over, from any background, is warmly welcome. Please feel free to share the event with your friends and family.
There is a limit on numbers to ensure space for discussion. If all the spaces are full please do join the waitlist or register your interest in future sessions by writing to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are in the process of organising multiple Climate Cafés, online and in-person around Scotland, but they are not designed as a series or programme and you are welcome to attend one or more events as you wish.
If you can no longer attend an event please let us know by email or by going to the ‘Tickets’ section of your Eventbrite account.
When attending this in-person event, please follow The Salisbury Centre’s safe access guidelines to care for yourself and others in the Centre’s community.
Most importantly, if you are experiencing any symptoms which might indicate Covid-19, if you have been in contact with somebody with actual or suspected Covid-19, or if you are in a period of quarantine please do not attend.

We have a rotating group of facilitators, and we come along to each event depending on availability. All have received training from the Climate Psychology Alliance to facilitate Climate Cafés. We have broad-ranging, varied experiences of group facilitation.
