Finding Joy, Meaning and Resilience
Updated: Jan 24
"Anxiety is thought to be an activist's superpower, but what happens when anxiety leads to despair and hopelessness? There are real and deep psychological impacts when facing long-term climate change, but we can learn to refocus our anxiety in generative and healing ways."
FACILITATORS: Dr. Teddie Potter, Director of Planetary Health at the University of Minnesota's School of Nursing, and Dr. Julia Nerbonne, MNIPL's Executive Director. Julia is one of the folks with whom Interfaith Climate Action leader Bob Morse became acquainted in June 2021 as MNIPL was a prime organizer of people of faith coming to witness to the indigenous action against Pipeline 3 on the White Earth Rez in Northern Minnesota.
"All are welcome to attend MNIPL's Community Connector webinars! On the 1st Tuesday of each month, we deepen into a different topic related to climate justice. Through shared learning and conversation, we hope you can feel more confident and empowered to help grow the climate movement. Whether it’s with a community of faith or spiritual practice, neighborhood group, circle of friends, etc., we are all community connectors!"
