Saffron Walden Action on Climate Change (SWACC) are continuing their Changing Conversations events with an evening of talks and group discussion at local café Bicicletta.

The next talk, entitled 'Eco-Resilience: from fear to thriving in uncertain times', will be from Dr Nickee Stopler, counselling psychologist, eco-psychologist and SWACC member. Nickee will be talking about the psychology of eco-anxiety, resilience and how people can sustain their 'eco-energy' and wellbeing through the times ahead.

Dr Stopler said: 'These evenings are a fantastic way to meet people, discover new ideas and have a really good chat! And we are very lucky to be hosted by the new look, bigger Bicicletta!'

The event will take place on Thursday March 19, between 7 - 9pm.

Tickets are free and can be booked online through Eventbrite at www.swacc.co.uk. You can join SWACC on Facebook by searching their Saffron Walden Action on Climate Change group.
