Why Hope Matters: How to Support Kids to Find Meaningful Engagement in the Age of Eco-anxiety and Climate Doom
Dr. Elin Kelsey
Oct. 23, 2021

An inspiring and solutions-focused workshop! Elin Kelsey leads an exploration of the eco-anxiety, weariness and disempowerment we and our kids are experiencing and how we can find sources that enable us to support kids to move beyond feeling disempowered by the doom and gloom of media reporting towards meaningful engagement.

Learn more about Elin and her work on her website, including a link to the Existential Toolkit for Climate Justice Educators website, which showcases an extensive collection of climate change communication resources for enhancing engagement while navigating the climate emergency. 

Toast, Hail, Boast!

During the workshop, Elin shared her Toast, Hail & Boast strategy and invited participants to 

  • toast someone present for their meaningful climate action,

  • hail someone not present, or

  • boast about their own meaningful climate action.

We'd love to continue this positive storytelling and reporting on climate action that is making a difference! Please share a toast, hail, or boast using the form on this page. Don't be shy - we need to hear these stories to give us all energy and hope to continue to be engaged!
