Climate of Community
True Power for Climate Resilience and Recovery
Sunday, January 31, 2021
3:00-5:00 pm CST on Zoom
“Climate anxiety” and “eco-grief” refer to the widespread distress people experience as the realities of the climate crisis set in. Fear of what is to come and a sense of helplessness can wear us down. We are often overwhelmed, unsure how to do anything meaningful enough to make the large scale and fast changes needed to turn this around.
In this January 2021 session, Dr. Barbara Gilbert will review the True Power Paradigm as it relates to eco-anxiety and grief. She will describe the role of these emotions in effective empowerment to address the Climate Crisis. This session builds on what was addressed in the December 2020 session but participants will be able to follow along with the material and the exercises even if they didn’t attend in December.
In addition, we will have representatives from organizations that are taking action to address the Climate Crisis. They will describe what they are doing and how you can get involved if their mission fits you. The goal is to identify what matters most to you about the Climate Crisis and start to develop your plan of action both personally and in community.
Climate of Community is a grassroots group, a combined effort of a previous group based in Lawrence, KS, and The Resilient Activist organization. Many other organizations are partnering, sponsoring, supporting us as well.
The process of how we go about developing community is integral in effectively responding to the climate crisis.
We are working to create a climate of Community
so the community can work effectively for the Climate.
