Climate change continues to have direct impacts on individuals and communities in ways that are often misunderstood or overlooked. Understanding how people and societies are affected can allow us to better cope with the emotional impacts, while empowering us to take action.

This event features a panel of thought leaders in personal resilience who will relate climate change impacts on mental health through lived experiences and knowledge. Speakers will discuss the psychological conditions affecting Canadians due to climate change and how addressing these emotional impacts involves compassion, community, and understanding.

Participants will learn more about the importance of inner resilience and how to channel eco-anxiety and climate grief into community and purpose, including incorporating climate considerations in their work.
