As more of us consider the possibility of societal collapse due to climate and ecological crisis, there is growing desire to gather and discuss what it may mean for our own lives, communities and work. Not to hear simple answers, but to share a range of information, emotions, ideas and options.

Join us in this open dialogue, which will use the Open Space format to generate the conversations that those present want to have.

Co-hosted by Climate Psychology Alliance Scotland, Green House think tank and Extinction Rebellion Edinburgh, with support from Deep Adaptation Forum.

Introduced with video presentation by Prof Jem Bendell

FREE but donations towards venue & refreshments costs are very welcome
