Eco-Anxious? Join us for a series of free online workshops to learn and share resilience strategies.
Do you worry about Planet Earth, biodiversity loss and global warming? Are you struggling to take action, or campaign, to mitigate the nature and climate emergency?
Most people who are gripped by fear, sadness, anger, confusion, powerlessness and other strong emotions are vulnerable to episodes of burnout or hopelessness. Strong emotions drive change, and Earth and society are undoubtedly made better by compassionate people doing what they can to act on these issues. But constructive progress can often seem out of reach. At times like these, self care, and connecting with resilient peers, is an effective way to re-empower yourself to continue striving for the just and enlightened society you aim to help bring about.
Meet others who share your concerns to discuss personal resilience and empowerment strategies to help. Simply sign up for one or more of the free group workshops we’ve scheduled between now and 30 March 2022.

Some feedback from our 2022 workshops:
“Great to connect with some people who love Earth”
“The planning tool was a useful prompt, even just as a guide to help discussions with other people, or make connections to things I am already doing.”
“The self care planning tool feels like a great way to spark a conversation or share with someone who is struggling.”
“I enjoyed the breakout room as we had a bit longer to talk together. I would be interested in an ongoing group if that becomes possible. I enjoyed reading the readings. The self care planning tool helped me …..”
“Very useful to be exploring this, I feel a bit lighter already.”
“Meaningful connections made through discussing our emotions through the use of creative writings.”
