Various dates in July and August: Climate Listening Bench

Trumpington Meadows
Cambridge Climate Therapists Listening Bench project (inspired by the Zimbabwean Friendship Bench) offers a friendly empathic ear to anyone worried or upset about the climate crisis. Over the summer you'll find us on a bench at different open green spaces in Cambridge. Sit down and chat. No booking is required and you can come alone or with other people. Our first sessions have been organised in conjunction with the Wildlife Trust at Trumpington Meadows at the following times: Sunday 27 June 9.30-11.30 am; Saturday 3 July 9.30-11.30 pm; Sunday 11 July 2-4 pm; Sunday 18 July 9.30-11.30 am; Saturday 7 August 9.30-11.30 am; and Sunday 8 August 2-4 pm. Here's a map to find the reserve, and you'll find us near the small pond at the Northern (city) end of the reserve. See our website for more information about us. We will be following Government guidelines on social distancing at all times. This is a pilot project offered on a voluntary basis by our members. More...

Coping with the Climate Crisis - online resources

In case you missed the workshop With Ro Randall and Daniela Fernandez-Catherall from Cambridge Climate Therapists, there are some great resources online. Ro Randall has created a series of videos to help explore the anxiety, distress and despair that many people feel when confronted with the climate crisis, which you can watch here. You may also be interested in a recording of a shorter version of the workshop, which Ro presented to the Centre for Alternative Technology. More...

Help needed by Cambridge Community Kitchen

Cambridge Community Kitchen relies on volunteers both to cook and to deliver hot, plant-based meals every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday to those who need them. With the recent summer exodus of undergraduates from Cambridge, they're finding it hard to find enough volunteers to keep the service running, despite demand running at an all-time high. If you have some free time to cook (3pm to 7pm) or to ride/drive around Cambridge delivering (6pm to 8pm), CCK would very much like to hear from you. Head over to cckitchen.uk and register, or write to them here. Cambridge Community Kitchen are a food solidarity collective tackling food poverty in Cambridge - if you'd like to make a donation, you can do so here.
