19:45-20:30 networking & discussion
"Co-listening (co-counselling) practice involves two people taking turns listening and being listened to for an agreed amount of time, without interrupting or giving advice! Co-listening is a supportive tool in life, at meetings, at times of upset, and to help us face the enormity of the climate crisis."
We have taken on the feedback many of the attendees from the launch event gave and invited Kirsty Forshaw of Planting Up/ Transition Town to give a presentation about local initiatives in MK people can get involved with.
