Out There Arts National centre for outdoor arts and circus

What is a Climate Cafe?

A Climate Cafe is a welcoming space where people can meet to talk about Climate Change. Everyone is invited to bring their ideas and come up with solutions to tackle the pressing issue. The actions that result from discussion will be community-led by the local people who attend.

Open Friday 31st May and Saturday 1st June from 12pm-6pm at Mermadelica Cafe, St George's Park.
