The format for our February meeting will be a little different to the usual. Our chair, Rachel Berger, writes: “Climate change is happening very fast, and we have a very small window of opportunity for taking strong action to prevent catastrophe later this century – yet there is little sign of commitment from either governments or individuals to this kind of drastic action. Why?” Paul Hoggett is Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at UWE, Bristol. He is a psychoanalytic psychotherapist and has been involved in training and consultancy to public and voluntary organisations for many years. He is Chair of the Climate Psychology Alliance which seeks to bring insights from depth psychology to our understanding of collective paralysis in the face of dangerous climate change. Paul will give some insights into this collective inertia, and then set listeners some questions to discuss in small groups.
Chris is a Cornish farmer who attended our meeting last year when we heard from representatives of the environment agency about natural flood management. Chris offered to return to give us a talk about the work on his farm with beavers. His local village has been subject to flooding on many occasions and this is getting worse.
