Rad Workshops: Climate Grief & Activism

10:30am-12:30pm, Training Room 1 Union House

For many working on climate change and living with its implications, this work can be accompanied by difficult feelings such as sadness, despair, anger and fear, what many are now calling ‘climate grief’.

This is a workshop to make space for participants to reflect on the emotional difficulties of working on climate change in a safe and supported way. Returning for a second session after its popularity at Rad Ed Week, we will touch on and expand from topics covered at the last workshop.

We will also offer tools and skills for self-care so that we can continue to engage in the important political, cultural and collective work necessary for creating a life-sustaining society.

This workshop is held on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to their elders past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty for this land was never ceded, and it always was and will be Wurundjeri land.

Facilitated by Dr. Beth Hill
