DATE: Sat 15th June, 1 – 4.30pm
VENUE: Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House, 7 Victoria Terrace EH1 2JL
As more of us consider the possibility of societal collapse due to climate and ecological crisis, there is growing desire to gather and discuss what it may mean for our own lives, communities and work. Not to hear simple answers, but to share a range of information, emotions, ideas and options. Join us in this open dialogue, which will use the Open Space format to generate the conversations that those present want to have.
Introduced with video presentation by Prof Jem Bendell
FREE but donations towards venue & refreshments costs are very welcome
