Facing Climate Change Workshop

Friday, April 21

12:30 – 4:30 pm

PCC Cascade Campus – TEB #222

705 N Killingsworth St, Portland, OR 97217

Facing Climate Change identifies the psychological barriers that inhibit our sense of efficacy and offers tools to overcome adversity, develop communication skills, and build our resilience. This workshop will use lessons from ecopsychology to help you build your own reserves of personal resilience so that you can face what you know and read about climate change with clear eyes, not sink into despair, and learn practices that will be psychologically supportive and empowering, including suggestions for how you can take action in your own communities. Through this lens, climate change becomes our ally to help us to move forward.

Participants will receive:

  • Methods for self-care that are crucial to resilience and psychological well-being.
  • Exercises designed to strengthen connection, communication, and empathy.
  • Strategies for building positive visions for a flourishing planetary future.

30 participants from higher education institutions and the community will have the opportunity to be a part of this pilot project, gaining the knowledge, inspiration, and skills to become change agents in their communities.

General Registration $15. Scholarship tickets $5.  Funds cover refreshments and course materials.
