Building Resilience in Ourselves and in our Communities
18 March 2022 - 28 April 2022
If you feel powerless in the face of the challenges that the climate crisis will present us with, this course aims to help you find ways to care for yourself, and find hope through local, practical action within your community, whether that is your local Quaker meeting, your street, or your town.
The course will encourage participants to share their emotions around the climate crisis, and share ways of spiritual nourishment to assist with grief, anger and despair.
Moving to the practical, participants will share the experiences of their own communities in coping with the pandemic crisis in 2020-21. We will pool ideas for building resilience so that participants leave the course enthused to engage with their communities to build resilience – whether in practical, emotional, or social ways.
The start date for the course is when the online content and discussion forum becomes available; you can work on this material at any time to suit you.
The live Zoom sessions are at 19:00-21:00 (UK time) every Tuesday during this period with the exception of 19 April when there will not be a session.
All times are given as UK time. Make sure to check your own timezone at www.savvytime.com/converter/
