19 November, 17.00-18.30, The Faversham, 1-5 Springfield Mount, Leeds LS2 9NG  The reality of climate change research can be overwhelming and when faced with the data and analysis every day the emotional responses can be challenging. Given the complexity of the problem, it’s all too easy to end up feeling helpless and hopeless, disconnected, angry, or something else. The Priestley Society thinks that creating a space to help us share or respond to the emotional challenges of our work – whether to develop strategies of support, empathise, or just vent – is becoming increasingly important. This is an initial informal chat for anyone interested or intrigued by this idea.
