The environmental destruction in our world has left many with a profound sense of climate grief. Although COP 26 has made some progress on steps to protect our planet and restore ecosystems, there will continue to be levels of destruction for some time. The reflective morning will create a space to reflect on and express some of the emotions that we are left with at the end of COP 26, as recognising, expressing and sharing the grief and pain that we experience for the world can then empower us and release the energy needed for action.
