Climate Café for Parents: Reflecting on Raising Children in a Warming Climate

April 28 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm EDT


NH Audubon and the Climate and Health Initiative for Caregivers and Kids (CHICKs) are partnering to host a climate café for parents on April 28th at 10am at the McLane Center in Concord. Climate cafés are facilitated, small-group gatherings where participants are provided with a safe space to share their thoughts and emotions around the threat posed by global warming. This event will uniquely focus on the mental health of parents, who are presented with the burden of raising their children in the shadow of an uncertain and dangerous climate. The café is an opportunity to meet and connect with other local parents who are concerned about the impact of climate change.

The event will be co-facilitated by Maria Finnegan and Michelle Wagner. Ms. Finnegan is the Director of CHICKs with NH Healthcare Workers for Climate Action, where she leads the organization’s work around the physical and mental health impacts of climate change on children and caregivers. Ms. Wagner is a mental health educator and advocate here in New Hampshire, and holds both a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling (MS) and Master of Theological Studies (MTS).

Registration is required for this event. If you sign up and are unable to attend, please let organizers know so that we can let others in from the waitlist.
