This initiative by Plastic Free Denman & the Denman Island Climate Action Network is a way of encouraging action on topics we feel are urgent and combatting feelings of helplessness in the face of the on-going dire news about climate change.Letter writing and signing petitions can be done from home but when we gather together we feel less isolated and can amplify our actions by encouraging others to participate. We see this as a way of getting people out, joining in discussion, and doing something positive and effective.
Beyond Denman Our committees would like to connect with other groups in various locations to encourage Letter Writing Cafés everywhere. This would create a much larger impact, develop awareness and unite us in times of uncertainty. For those who cannot march on Fridays for Climate Action, for those who are discouraged by the lack of progress and the slowness of politicians to make meaningful changes in legislation, these cafes are at least an opportunity to act.
