This Feasta workshop on March 23, facilitated by John Sharry, looked at our emotional response to the crises that we are facing and how we can ensure that we are not disabled but, instead, maintain a creative, thoughtful, empathic response as we navigate our way forward.
This collective exploration of our response to COVID-19, the phenomenon of enforced absence, and our need for basic sustenance was organised by Afri, Feasta, Irish Seed Savers and Maynooth University.
Through a combination of interview-style conversation and small-group discussion, this event on December 7 will explore the mental health and emotional toll of our increasing awareness of climate change and environmental destruction.
