Eco-anxiety Workshop: from worry to action
Sorry, registration is now closed. We have reached full capacity for the workshop space.
Have you experienced eco-anxiety: a feeling of inertia, despair, hopelessness, or overwhelm due to the climate and ecological crises? Has that increased during the current situation? Well you are not alone! Please participate in this one-hour e-workshop to explore your emotional reaction to these planetary crises. Together we can become centred, productive, and even joyful in our response. As climate activist Courtney Howard puts it, "Action feels better than anxiety. I don't worry anymore—I just do the work."
Everyone is welcome to sign up, but spots are limited to ensure a productive discussion and to leave a space for everyone to participate.
