The Climate Cafe movement started in 2015 in rural Scotland and is community led. Now sister Cafés are emerging around the world. Here you can learn about Climate Cafés, connect with others, find out how they work, as well as find support and guidance to start your own.
Climate Cafe Multifaith is organized by Rev. Richenda Fairhurst, former minister at First United Methodist Church in Ashland, OR, who blogs about climate activism at Faiths4Future. This Multifaith community "began as an effort of faith leaders, clergy, lay people, leaders of different faith traditions, who recognized the urgency that we face, the impact that urgency will have or our communities, and the necessity of taking action at all levels. Many of who are part of Faiths4Future were trained by the Climate Reality Project Leadership Corps, and the Minister’s Trainings led by the Center for Earth Ethics."
Climate Cafe MultiFaith is held on zoom every 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Tuesday of the month, at 11 a.m. PDT. "It is an opportunity for faith leaders and clergy to get together to share experiences, and engage a discussion, with a short presentation & Q&A, around the subject of climate change, climate effects and climate solutions—hope!"
