In this Empathy Cafe, we will use the Empathy Circle process to discuss and take tangible steps to spread the Empathy Circle process widely throughout the Extinction Rebellion movement. We will dialogue and take tangible steps. At the core, we want to support people in learning and deepening their active listening (aka, empathic listening, reflective listening, deep listening) skills. We want every person to be able to take part in an empathy circle, facilitate an empathy circle and an Empathy Cafe.

Conflict is a normal part of life. In this Empathy Cafe, we will use the Empathy Circle process to discuss and take tangible actions on; How might Extinction Rebellion more effectively mediate, facilitate and resolve internal (and external) conflict? The Empathy Circle process itself, is a very simple and foundational conflict resolution practice that anyone can use. We will learn and practice this skill.
