Climate Psychology Alliance with Living Witness
Saturday 2nd December 2017, 10.30 am to 5 pm
Friends Meeting House, 43 St Giles, Oxford, OX1 3LW
A day for anyone who is interested in the psychological underpinnings of personal, social and political action – a chance for us to share our experiences of enabling positive responses to climate change:
• What are the theories of change embodied in our different practices?
• How do we develop agency for change when our own lives are part of the problem?
• What are our experiences of the interplay of individual and collective agency?
• How do these themes relate to well-explored aspects of climate psychology – e.g. splitting, denial, loss etc.?
This participatory day will include whole-group and small-group conversations exploring our approaches to change, very brief presentations from a few practitioners, and small group workshops to experience or discuss practices.
We aim to include representatives of several practices including those based on nature connection, community/organisational change, individuals in a group context, cathartic/ritual/grief work, communication and listening, spiritual approaches, and action inquiry/learning.
Refreshments will be provided including a bread and soup lunch. There are also many cafés and restaurants in the vicinity of the Meeting House.
The cost of attending is: standard rate £25, CPA member rate £20, unwaged £10.
These fees cover refreshments and CPA core costs. Oxford Quaker Meeting is providing the venue free of charge.
