Join the RSA Global community for an explorative dialogue to witness and acknowledge the impact of climate change on people and communities experiencing exclusion, inequality and deprivation within our societies.

This unique event invites you to step into a collective exploration of the interconnectedness between humanity and the environment, fostering a deeper understanding of people who live with greater impact from climate change. Engage in contemplative discussions that invite participants to share personal reflections and insights as well as collective context. Connect with fellow participants in a mindful and open-hearted space focused on recognizing where each of us are on this “journey.” 

Join us as we reflect upon the importance of people’s relationship with the natural world, and how such insights could be influential in mitigating and responding to the existing and future needs of excluded groups and deprived populations and communities in a way that is reciprocal, sustaining and nurturing to people and the natural world in which they live. Your presence and contemplative voice are integral to this shared exploration.
