“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.

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.

This program is open to anyone in any location! With the power of online meetings, community groups can be defined by more than just geographic proximity.

In this event, Dr. Barbara Gilbert will teach and facilitate a process for moving from despair, grief, or anxiety to empowerment. We will also work to further develop connections among participants. Your voice–all voices–are essential to our strength.
