Monday 28-9-2020 19.00 – 21.30
Speaker: Oscar Westra van Holthe
Host: Iris Kouwenhoven
How does the climate crisis feel for you? As a responsibility to do something about it? Like a burden, making your sense of activation melt like a polar ice cap? Do you find ways to relativate, or hold it under water?
Climate change can be a stormy subject. Something with alarmous messaging and giving up on a healthy sense of hedonism.
That's one way to view it, but it can also be a time for a deeper connection, to humansand nature, finding creativity in new ways of living. To see that it is not about giving things up, but about allowing space for something new to arise.But let's face it, there is a crisis happening. Like a flood, washing emotions ashore. How do we keep ourselves emotionally safe – so we can make sound decisions and take the right action?
Well, let's talk about it. Every feeling is welcome here, let's explore them together. Oscar Westra van Holthe will be your speaker of the night, a systemic coach. He focuses on the social side of sustainability and has given regenerative workshops to Extinction Rebellion.
Deniers, activists, meat lovers, curious people – everyone can drift by.
