Climate Café

Join us at the monthly climate café at the Belmont Filmhouse where you can listen to talks and share coffee and cake with like-minded people. Everyone welcome.

The Climate Café series is designed to inform and inspire those in the North East of Scotland to ‘take action’ and start up their own eco/sustainability projects, change their lifestyles or just simply to understand and know more about what options and amazing projects there are around, locally. Each Café will have a speaker, or film clip, followed by a Q&A session and ending with an informal get together with food, drink, and a chat. The Series will cover the themes of Renewable Energy, Food, Transport, Reduce/ Re-Use and Recycle, Finance, Politics and Education.
