The climate crisis can feel overwhelming – but many people are discovering that facing their fears together can be a powerful catalyst for change. “Climate Cafes” springing up around Britain are providing supportive spaces for people to come together and explore the fear, grief and anger that a clear-eyed reckoning with the scale of the climate and ecological emergency can trigger. This is not as depressing as it sounds: Participants report that the experience of airing their feelings in a trusted group can trigger a powerful form of emotional alchemy that leaves them feeling more connected, energised and inspired to find creative new ways to act.
