Join Kat Davis on October 2-3 for a one-credit workshop, cross listed with ANTH/UX/ENVSTDS: “From Climate Anxiety to Action: Co-Creating a Vision of a Resilient Future.”
Location: ILC 202
Date: October 2 – 3, 2021
Time: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Climate anxiety is often described among students as the inability to imagine a future in which climate change solutions have been successful. This workshop provides a framework for students to identify the overwhelming feelings that stem from learning about and experiencing climate change, and to gain tools to work through these feelings by using local spaces to create a tangible vision of a future of solutions and community resilience.
In this hands-on workshop, identify and understand climate anxiety – the sense of doom and fear of the future that comes from climate change. Learn tools to work through this anxiety with tangible opportunities for action through design exercises that transform our local spaces from carbon emitters to climate solutions.
- Identify how your body and mind react to climate anxiety.
- Transform climate anxiety into action by framing climate solutions as community resilience, relationships, and self-efficacy.
- Co-Create the Future with visual representations that reimagine the future of local spaces rooted in justice-centered, global climate action.
