Climate justice: Radical hope and honesty at the intersection of many crises
Wednesday, June 22nd, 2022 at 9am EDT (1pm UTC)
Join hosts Purity Kagwiria and Ellen Sprenger.
Climate is a topic that stirs up many emotions: fear for our communities, grief over what we’ve already lost, anxiety about what’s to come, along with the radical hope that it is possible to change our futures. Yet, many among us are burning out. Others veer into hopelessness (or helplessness) and avoidance.
We want to hold each other differently in this conversation. We'll talk about what's happening around us as well as the tensions we experience when trying to act on climate. Come and get support or exchange strategies for managing this tension, talking about it in your community and stepping into a radical hope mindset. We'll approach this with our solidarity, coaching and facilitation lenses.
