Global Climate Psychology for a Just Future
We are an emerging global network of climate psychology groups. The network is coming to life through participation and learning from and giving support to each other.
Online Symposium on 14th Oct.2023
“From therapy to crisis leadership“
We are inviting all psychologists and psychotherapists and those on the way to become those to our first and worldwide online symposium!
We focus on both gaining a stronger voice for our professional knowledge and networking locally and regionally to raise visibility and awareness of all we have to say regarding the ongoing neglect of climate and biodiversity crises.
We encourage all psychologists and psychotherapists from around the world in all countries to join networks or set up their own and fight for just adaptation, mitigation and prevention of the ongoing climate crisis and its effects.
It is the biggest threat to health including psychological health we will be facing for the rest of this century. Therefore all psychologists and psychotherapists are called to action.
There are different types of action necessary – from research to community resilience building and activism there is a large range of activities both necessary and fruitful.
The symposium will focus not on research but on the tools, skills and best practices we need to gain focus and impact. The world has never needed us more and we are trying to catch up with all the aspects of how we are needed.
Since this is a worldwide event, we offer two separate times.
The first one will be on 14th of October at 10 AM CEST (e.g. Berlin, Pretoria). That is 5 PM in Tokyo and 7 PM in Canberra). You can easily add it to your calendar here.
The second slot will be also on 14th of October at 8 PM CEST ten ours later. You can easily add the second slot to your calendar here and look up what time that is for you locally.
You can register for both events using the buttons below.
The events will be free for all, all speakers and workshop conductors will contribute pro bono.
