A Series of Three Events:
Friday 11th October: Climate of Change
Friday 25th October: Climate of Change
Friday 15th November: Climate of Hope
Writers, activists, scientists, academics, psychologists and artists will meet members of the public for a series of Citizens’ Assemblies hosted by Birkbeck, University of London this autumn to in a series of events to coincide with the latest issue of Birkbeck’s journal of new writing, The Mechanics’ Institute Review: The Climate Issue.
Taking inspiration from the new issue of The Mechanics’ Institute Review, with poetry, stories and essays focused on Climate, these events are an opportunity to think more deeply about the language around climate change, and the way in which words shape our response to crisis. This is a chance to get involved in the conversation, ask questions, meet like-minded citizens and activists as well as writers, artists, academics, scientists and psychologists, and reflect on the way we speak about one of the most pressing issues facing us today. We want to know what we can do, and how we can use our creative, emotional and intellectual energy to push for positive change.
