The Antidote to Burnout: Taking bold action for climate justice with ease and joy.

Discover a way to bring ease and joy to making your unique impact, so you can stay in action for climate justice… for the longhaul!

Why this workshop? Why now?

Amidst the reality of the climate crisis, young people here in Seattle are taking bold and courageous action. They are planning climate strikes, organizing for a Green New Deal, and inspiring people across the state to join them in this unprecedented moment. 

Let’s be real, though, addressing the urgency and scope of the climate crisis can be overwhelming, especially as a young person. Given this reality, it can be so easy to worry about taking action “fast enough” or “big enough,” or to think being exhausted is just the cost of creating a better world. But what if there were a better way?  

In this interactive workshop, designed specifically for youth climate activists, you will discover how to consistently access joy and ease in your activism, so you can be impactful for the long haul.

What you’ll learn:

In this workshop, you will…

  • Learn how to spot your familiar doubts and worries when it comes to having the impact you dream of, and how to go beyond them… without wearing yourself out!

  • Discover your personal “guiding lights” that support you to make a difference in the world.

  • Know how to recognize when you’re living in alignment with your “guiding lights,” and how to ‘course-correct’ more quickly when you’re not, so you can get back to making the difference that matters most to you!

  • Leave this workshop with one meaningful next step to apply what you’ve learned to bring more joy and ease to your activism and your life.
