Rooted Resilience: Eco-distress & Messy Hope Discussion

Thursday, March 7, 2024
1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The D.B. Weldon Library (WL)
Room: Community Room (Rm. 128)

Western Sustainability is pleased to host the Rooted Resilience: Eco-distress & Messy HopDiscussion in collaboration with event moderator, Dr. Lesley Gittings. Through this event we hope to create space for dialogue and reflection around the variety of emotions people may be feeling in relation to climate change. 

In navigating through difficult emotions, we look towards the notion of messy hope. Messy hope recognizes the challenging feelings that exist around climate change and helps us to find opportunities to build hope and resilience. This event will explore eco-distress and other climate emotions through a panel discussion with a focus on resources, coping mechanisms, and ways to build hope. 

All are invited to attend this event! Event attendees are invited to participate in group discussion and/or self-reflect as we spend some time navigating our feelings around climate change. 

Event programme: 

  • Refreshments 
  • Opening remarks 
  • Panel discussion 
  • Reflection activity 
  • Closing remarks 
  • Optional: Join us for a 45-minute Wellness Walk around campus to explore nature
