Earning The Future Workshop

One World Workshop - Eco-Anxiety

Literally overnight, something so small, yet so large, changed my very aspect of our lives, and instilled fear and anxiety in person on the planet. Businesses closed, people lost their jobs, people died, and the future we all had hoped for, seemed an impossible dream. Anxiety creates negative feelings towards the present and the future, which in turn, create a downward spiral of hopelessness, depression and inaction. However, anxiety can also inspire and intensify our focus on activities that will make the world a better place. 

Eco-Anxiety takes a look at the causes of anxiety, how to reframe anxiety as a driving force for solving the challenges of our time, and building a prosperous new future.

Used for group workshops.
