Experience Renewal. Develop your radically hopeful vision for the future through virtual community collaboration across three themes…
Our Strength is with Each Other
Intersectionality. Feeling interconnection. Diversity as strength.
Open Up to Radical Imagining
Getting to the root. Self reflection & story sharing. Going beyond past limitation.
Feel Emotions as Collective Force for Change
Feeling both grief & hope. Building trust. Energizing growth.
Climate of Emotions isn’t another online conference.
It’s a free virtual retreat for everyone who cares to connect. Design your own experience.
Renewal, ReImagination, Empathy
We’ve divided our heads from hearts, focused on urgent action – and stayed within self-imposted limits of what’s possible and who’s stories are centered. How can we engage with the simultaneous crises of climate, injustice and empathy?
What if we stepped out of the limits and into a space where we can feel, imagine, connect. What if we can freely Let us make space reimagine and explore the intersections of racial, economic, climate justice spaces? Let’s use our emotions to power relationships that support rather than divide us.
Over three days we will co create a retreat experience to learn more about emotional intelligence, the natural world, creativity, mindfulness, and wellbeing to re-imagine, re-connect and re-energize.
Renewal Pathway for COE21 Virtual Retreat
Participants will have all-access pass to enlightening keynotes, interactive group learning & design sessions and self-paced learning content.
Day 1 – 19 April
We will enter an emergent space, deliberately becoming aware of our biases. We will tell our stories as a critical step in arriving to this space, to this group, at this perfect time. Here, we will make new allies, create and play with freedom of expression, and build trusting space to share feelings.
Day 2 – 20 April
Deliberately celebrating childlike creativity in an intergenerational community, these sessions will explore the role of imagination in problem-solving. We’ll imagine and re-imagine — then begin to embody a new way of feeling about ourselves and our collective future.
Day 3 – 21 April
Holding complexity around the massive problems we face, while embracing the simplicity of the micro-changes we can make – and have made. Knowing that large changes are the echo and result of many small ones. By fully embodying the feelings of our future visions, we’ll discover concrete steps that we can embed in our daily lives now.

How will you cocreate at COE?
The transformative power of this festival comes from the involvement, imagination, and mutual sharing of the participants. In order to facilitate this and enable generative vulnerability, the environment will be intentionally designed and facilitated to be affirming and culturally expansive. Some of the plans for this include:
Centering voices of youth and those from marginalized groups
Utilizing trained mentors to support inclusive dialogue
Setting and reinforcing clear ground rules for engagement
