About this event
1 hour 30 minutes
What is a Climate Café?
Climate Café is a warm and welcoming space, with facilitators, where you and others who are concerned about the climate crisis and related issues share your feelings and thoughts. It’s a haven from busyness and isolation. A space for you to come as you are, share as much or as little as you’re comfortable with.
A Climate Café is not a space for planning climate action or discussing climate policy. While these actions are very important, they are not the focus of our Climate Cafés. We are taking this approach because we know that sharing feelings in a supportive setting helps to build our resilience during this confusing and difficult time.
This session will be hosted specifically for parents / carers / guardians who are experiencing strong emotions about climate change and looking to connect with others facing similar experiences.

Note: we always try our best to cultivate a safe space for our participants in Climate Cafés. Therefore, we kindly ask you to arrive at the session on time, and we will have to deny any admissions that are later than 7:15 EST in order to provide you and other participants a meaningful and engaging experience. In case you cannot make it on time to this Climate Café, we always welcome you to sign up for our future sessions.
Meet your facilitators
Brianna Aspinall Nuñez – Facilitator
Back in 2016, I started to wake up to the pain of climate change and realize that I needed to more actively live within my values and find my personal way to contribute to the climate crisis. This led to starting CCTO, connecting with my emotions, and building my strengths in facilitating. I truly enjoy facilitating as I get to hold space, listen, and be curious for participants. It’s magic when people find the answers and strength in them. These moments allow me to learn from a variety of perspectives and remind me that there is hope when we work together and focus on those who are actively working to build a kinder and safer world.
