Climate Cafes are informal meetings, open to everyone - whether we are familiar with climate change or not but are interested in its effects on the environment, and how this is making us think and feel.
People are welcome to come along, have a coffee or tea and chat with others about concerns they have about climate change, share ideas and tools for action. Check out the different events below!
24 July: 12pm - 2pm
Stop With the Plastic, Already!!! - Are you confused about which plastic is what, what can and cannot be recycled, and what the fuss is all about? Join UpHub's
plastics specialist in a conversation about achievable actions to reducing the use of plastic in everyday life, and tools to make this count.
28 August: 12pm - 2pm
Ownership, access and the Right to Food: - The majority of our food is produced by growing on and grazing the land, but who has access to land and choice in its use is severely limited in Scotland. Concentrated ownership of land, space, intellectual property and resources severely impacts the Scottish food system, our environment and our Right to Food, both in the city and the countryside. Join the People's Pantry
to discuss what shaped these limitations, and what are the different ways we might create shared spaces and room to grow in the city, with a particular focus on the Southside of Glasgow.
25 September: 12pm - 2pm

20 November: 12pm - 2pm
