Global Climate Cafe

A safe space to talk openly about the climate crisis, how it makes us feel and how we can come together in collective anger, despair, hope and more.

 

Wed 24 Apr – Creative Writing Workshop with Rosemarie Corlett – Location: The Gallery Cafe

Join us for a climate cafe and a 60 – 90 minute Creative Writing for the Climate Workshop with Plymouth Laureate of Words, Rosemarie Corlett in collaboration with Climate Action Plymouth.

 

Dr Rosemarie Corlett is an author and lecturer in creative writing at University of Plymouth. As Plymouth Laureate of Words, Rosemarie works with several community organisations, including Plymouth Centre for Cultural Diversity, Racial Equality Council, Children’s University, Climate Action Plymouth, Literature Works and others. Her poetry collection Flightless Bird (Shearsman books) is out now.

Plymouth Laureate of Words is a creative partnership between Literature Works, Plymouth Culture and The Box. The Laureate represents their city in words, illuminating its life, culture and stories through a combination of creative writing commissions and public events. The locally based Laureate meets the Plymouth community to inspire and encourage the sharing of stories; reflecting the voices at the heart of the city.

The climate and ecological crisis is the greatest threat facing our planet today. In response, we are seeing a rise in anxiety, fear and overwhelm. 70% of young people today are eco-anxious; 56% believe that humanity is doomed. We need more spaces where we can come together to navigate these emotions through conversation and creativity.

That is why we’re running a Force of Nature climate café. It is an opportunity to meet people in Plymouth who care about tackling the climate crisis, hear about their experiences and talk openly about how it makes us feel.

Our climate cafe is run by facilitators trained in the climate cafe model by Rebecca Nestor and the Climate Psychology Alliance.

The climate cafés are part of a series of cafés supported by Force of Nature made up of over 100 that have taken place in more than 40 countries worldwide.

 

It is free to attend but spaces are limited so make sure to secure your spot. You don’t need anything but yourself. Just book your spot and come along!
