Meanjin Climate CAFE

The Climate C.A.F.E. is a 1.5 hr session which anyone can host and run in their home or online. It's about connecting with a group of friends to take action on climate change together in a variety of ways and keep each other accountable. The focus is on actions that have the potential to create real change on the systems we live in.

C.A.F.E. attendees will be able to choose from a ‘menu’ of actions to participate in together:

TALK: having new conversations about climate change

POLITICS: engaging with your local MP

ENERGY/MONEY: shifting your energy or money away from fossil fuels

LEARNING FROM FIRST NATIONS CULTURES: discovering information about the traditional custodians of your local land

MY STORY: Creating and sharing a story about why you support strong climate action.

Please note: You will need to bring along a laptop to this session, or an electronic device that can help you engage with the resources provided.

This event will be run by our Volunteer Facilitator James for the UQ Public Health Society, it is also open to C4C supporters and the public.
