What: This program aims to address the need for supporting our communities’ engaged youth as they face the difficult thoughts, emotions, and uncertainties that come along with the grave realities of climate change. The program curriculum draws off of Joanna Macy’s Work that Reconnects, to help participants move through grief/anxiety towards gratitude and action. This program will focus on creating a safe, inclusive and caring community of belonging within which to explore these tricky topics.
Who: Youth experiencing anxiety and mixed emotions that come from witnessing and living with climate crisis, who are also looking to connect with like minded peers, and to find ways to move through to a place of acceptance, resilience and hope. Youth should be self-motivated to participate in a group program with like-minded peers who have a shared love and concern for the Earth and all its beings.
