Climate Odyssey Introduction & Climate Café
with Barbara Ford
Welcome to the Climate Odyssey program! Designed to offer support to those who feel a need for community, connection, and resilience in these turbulent times, the Climate Odyssey offers experiences, skill-building, and community resilience practices to strengthen the Climate Justice Community.
We’ll also do some sharing in community via a process of facilitated small group conversation called the Climate Café, designed to help us get to know each other, share our concerns and hopes, and grow in the understanding of our individual and collective capacity to respond to the challenges at hand. This process emphasizes the value of our collective wisdom and compassion, as well as works to diminish the isolation that some of us experience in the feelings of overwhelm related to the news of the day.
Some participants will be veterans in the climate movement. Some will be new to this community. All are welcome to share and support each other to bring our best gifts to the world. Please RSVP
