Are you stressed about climate change? Do you fear what the future on a rapidly changing planet is going to look like? Do you feel alienated from other people because conversations about climate change can be so difficult?
You are not alone. Millions of Americans are alarmed by the climate emergency but most of us don’t talk about it. We keep our grief, fear, and anger to ourselves, a spiral of silence that makes us feel lonely and powerless.
Climate Conversations is a free, roundtable, sharing and listening session, hosted by the Haw Creek Community Association and moderated by Storms Reback, HCCA board member and Chair of our Green & Clean Committee. It offers participants a chance to talk about their feelings about the climate emergency with like-minded people. It’s also an opportunity to connect with and learn from people who feel the same way you do.
Based on a format created by clinical psychologist and climate activist Margaret Klein Salamon, these conversations have proven to be effective at turning loneliness into connection, despair into hope, and pain into action. Participants have reported leaving the discussion feeling connected, more resilient, and more empowered.
To encourage meaningful conversation, this session will be limited to the first nine people who sign up. Register today to reserve your spot.
