"Living with the Climate Crisis" project funding

Help CPA fund Living with the Climate Crisis
 
CPA is delighted to host Living with the Climate Crisis. We are seeking match funding to enable the creation and design of a simple website to hold the materials for both facilitators and participants. Of the £3,000 needed for this, we are grateful to have received a pledge of £1,500 already from Cambridge Climate Therapists.
 
This GoFundMe is organised by me Kate, CPA secretary, for CPA members to contribute - so it is not my success as stated below but our success! - and thank you. We raised the money. For updates please see the Climate Psychology Alliance websitefor news.

If anyone else wants to join us you are very welcome. 

We have already raised some of the money needed and we are trying GoFundMe as an alternative platform - at the moment the money will go via my personal bank account but if we like the platform we can hopefully make an organisation account.

You can, as an alternative, donate directly to CPA via our Enthuse platform for donations HERE
 
What is Living with the Climate Crisis?
The ground breaking Carbon Conversations project began in 2006 - find out more HERE. An updated version of Carbon Conversations, named Living with the Climate Crisis, has been developed by Ro Randall, Rebecca Nestor and Daniela Fernandez-Catherall and will be available in the autumn for Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA) members to facilitate. 
 
"Climate has moved from being a desperately urgent issue to being a crisis and an emergency. Public knowledge has increased and rather than detailed guidance on the need for personal carbon reduction, people today need help in coping with the devastating feelings that sometimes overwhelm them. They need to explore ways to feel joy and satisfaction in a precarious world and support in finding their way to a variety of personal, political and community action. They need skills in communicating, both publicly and in personal situations. Reducing personal impact still matters but its place needs to shift."
 
Living with the Climate Crisis aims to help people find their place in the collective project of responding to climate change. At its heart is a clear psychological approach, based on the following principles:
  • climate change is distressing: people need support in coping with the difficult feelings that sometimes overwhelm them, and to explore ways to feel joy and satisfaction in a precarious world
  • the best means to collective solutions is in supportive groups based in local communities
  • people need support in finding their way to a variety of personal, political and community actions
  • people need skills in communicating, both publicly and in personal situations
So Living With the Climate Crisis focuses on how to cope, how to find strength, how to find your place in the climate movement, and how to communicate well. It consists of seven meetings and is currently being piloted. Facilitator materials will be available in the autumn and the authors will offer introductory workshops to support people wishing to run the groups in their own localities.
