7:15pm – 9:30pm

Carbon Conversations  The moment you start talking about climate change, feelings, fears and dilemmas come tumbling out. People know there’s a problem. But it’s hard to face and hard to know what to do. Carbon Conversations groups help people face their complicated reactions and start to take more action to tackle climate change over a series of 6 meetings. Each meeting looks at a different topic such as food, travel and home energy and provides a non-judgemental atmosphere for members to learn and share. Groups are typically 6-8 people helped by two trained facilitators. https://stmattsleeds.churchsuite.co.uk/events/n25ni8bj
