Restalrig Cycle Path Tree Planting & Cleanup

  • Restalrig Circus, Edinburgh, EH7 6, United Kingdom (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

I know that a clean up was done round here recently so would be great to add further to those efforts!

In addition, I have permission from the council to plant some extra trees along the cycle path as there's some bald patches we could fill up, so would be great if we could also get them in!

In total I've purchased 45 native trees from the woodland trust - holly, hazel, wild cherry and rowan.

The Psychology of Climate Change

This talk will summarise the current crisis, look at the psychology behind our reactions to it, how creative people are addressing the issue of climate change crisis and how this is transferable to any discipline, the difference between personal actions and activism, the role of intersectionality and class war, why recycling might kill us off, and in a break with convention and the usual depressing environmental talks, actually give you the answer to solve it. It will be followed by a chance to discuss the issues. It will be truth: at turns depressing, informing and ultimately (I hope) uplifting.
