6 months on from COP26 Psycho-Social Reflections: What have we learnt?
4th May 2022 - 7th May 2022
The Association for Psychosocial Studies and the Climate Psychology Alliance are jointly hosting a two-day, international online event reflecting through a psychosocial lens upon the lessons learnt 6 months after COP26.
Two parallel events will be taking place – one in the Western Time Zone and one in the Eastern Time Zone. Sessions in both regions will mirror one another, with the events being a mixture of live and pre-recorded sessions.
Paul Hoggett – From COP15 in Copenhagen to COP26 in Glasgow
Shelot Masithi – Climate Change and Thirs
This event aims to:
Face together the realities on the ground as a result of the failure of COP26 to effectively tackle disastrous levels of global heating.
Increase understanding and enable dialogue between different climate-affected groups and places across the globe.
Identify and support emergent processes that strengthen individual and community resilience in their engagement with climate crisis
Support the development of psycho-socially informed perspectives and practices around climate change and its impact upon physical and mental wellbeing.
Keynote speeches will be delivered by Paul Hoggett and Shelot Masithi. More information about their speeches can befound here.
Across the two-days and two time zones, there will be four panel discussions focusing on different aspects of the climate emergency and how different nations/actors have responded.
