Climate Change Resiliency Group

Supporting yourself and your family to respond to eco-anxiety, while strengthening resilience in our changing world.

Who is it for?

The devastating summer bushfires followed by a global pandemic have left many people feeling stressed and anxious about the future.
Are you worried about the impact that climate change will have on your life and the lives of children and young people?
Are you concerned to see children taking more responsibility than adults to advocate for changes to ensure a safer world?
Do you want to turn things around so all people and species can have a brighter future, but don’t know where to start?
Climate Change Resiliency Group is a six-session experiential group program starting in October 2020, for people who are concerned about the future of our planet and the impact of global warming on us, other species and the environment.
The devastating summer bushfires followed by a global pandemic has left many people feeling stressed and anxious about the future.
Anxiety is understandable in these uncertain times.

What will it be like?

Over the course of the program you will:
• Share ideas with like-minded people.
• Gain skills to empower yourself, children and young people to cope with the challenges of climate change.
• Strengthen your connection to your community and nature to sustain yourself.
• Explore strategies to make changes in your own life that will contribute to a positive future.

The group is designed for a small group of participants and to maximise sharing of ideas. Some of the sessions will be held in a bushland setting.

Key outcomes

  • Identify your strengths.
  • Gain new perspectives.
  • Work through change.
