TOPIC: Mourning our climate: how are you we dealing with the emotional and even spiritual impacts of a dashed planet?

Monday, March 10th, 5-7pm
Atrium Lounge

The twenty-first century promises rising temperatures, undulating oil prices, scarce minerals, and economic uncertainty. We’ve heard some of the numbers and experienced the phenomena. How are these crises affecting not just our attitudes now but also our long-term decisions such as having children, going to school, or saving for retirement? How can we take care of ourselves and our community in a time of crisis? In this public conversation, we will seek to move beyond guilt, blind optimism, and doomsday gloom to create a compassionate space in which we can share stories of changes made and challenges encountered, and reflect upon our vulnerability and our resilience in the face of transition.
Facilitated by David Summerhays.
This is a repeat conversation from the University of the Streets Café.
