Staying sane while saving the world (LDC Group on Climate Change, UNIDO, YOUNGO)
This workshop aims to empower young climate activists, professionals and leaders to navigate the complex global climate space effectively. It recognizes the unique challenges faced by young people and especially youth from LDCs, who are most vulnerable and often at the forefront of climate movements. During the workshop we look at challenges including eco-anxiety, overworking as volunteers, as well as dealing with frustration and disappointment. Through theory, somatic practices, case studies and group discussions, a participatory learning environment will be established to acquire essential tools for inner resilience and self-care.
- Identifying and verifying the different challenges of youth from LDCs and beyond, in particular those related to emotional challenges
- Providing young climate activists, professionals and leaders with tools for enhancing their inner resilience to overcome the identified challenges
