In time for tomorrow: Why is climate change so easy to ignore?

A talk and reception with Rosemary Randall and Andy Brown

Monday 9 February, 6pm - 7.30pm

In time for tomorrowRosemary Randall, (psychotherapist researching and writing on climate change) and Andy Brown (energy consultant), will discuss the factors that stop people engaging with difficult subjects like climate change. Exploring why engagement needs to be psychological and social as well as practical, they set about creating a project that would help people past their avoidance of this difficult topic.

The Carbon Conversations project is now used by a growing number of organisations across the UK, with the second edition of the handbook, In Time for Tomorrow? just released.

Drinks available from 6pm with the talk beginning at 6.30pm.
