The evening begins at with a short sound piece made for Remembrance Day for Lost Species which this year is in its 10th year. Caroline’s event will finish at 18.15 in time for you to join Bea Xu for a ritual inspired by the theme of ecological entanglement and webs at 18.30 (this is an ONCA event; separate booking is required).
Caroline is in conversation with Mat Osmond (Falmouth University and Co-convenor of Borrowed Time) and Zoe Young, Falmouth University Pagan Chaplain) about the love, longing and loss we need to feel as we remember lost species. Caroline has been working as a depth psychotherapist with an ecological awareness whilst also researching children & young people’s emotional responses to the climate and biodiversity crisis globally for many years. She will bring these children’s narratives of loss to the conversation and reflect on their awareness of their own vulnerability and that of the others with whom we are living through these troubled times. For some young people they are being born and growing up in the shadow of their own personal and cultural mortality. And for them ‘it is personal, what happens to the animals is happening to me too’.
