When we face up to the fact that humanity has played a large part in the degradation and destruction of the Natural World and that the enormity of the problem seems insurmountable, we can often feel powerless to act. What is the point when the problem is so huge? What difference can I make? We might also feel guilt, rage, grief, impotence or be stuck and depressed. All are understandable and very human responses.
In this session we will look at how we can acknowledge these feelings, work with them and use them as the energy and motivation to act. Action for change can take many forms and we will look at how we can best use our own skills, expertise and areas of interest to engage with what matters most to us and motivates us most strongly. We will present some possible ways to get engaged in change to take better care of our precious world.
There are millions of people out there already engaged in positive change – let’s join them!
