Feasta event, Saturday, Dec 7th 2019, 10.30am-4pm; Tailors’ Hall, Back Lane, Dublin 8.
This event will explore the mental health and emotional toll of our increasing awareness of climate change and environmental destruction. It will combine interview-style conversations with individual speakers with audience workshops.

The topics covered will be;
– practical steps to build personal and community resilience
– the particular issues facing young activists and their parents
– how a philosophy and practice of “enough” can help us cope, critique, resist and create
– Joanna Macy’s “Active Hope”
