Why are we doing this

We’re embarking on this journey to empower youth workers to deal with eco-anxiety and focus on the crucial issue of the interrelation between mental health and climate change. Eco-anxiety especially affects young people, who worry about not being able to live in a clean, healthy and sustainable future. Many times this hinders their capacity to be involved in advocacy efforts, as the fear overwhelms them and results in isolation from their community.

Through non-formal education methods, we will equip the participants with knowledge on eco-anxiety and mental health impacts of climate change, enabling them to take meaningful action on these issues in their own communities. We will create a platform for discussions, knowledge-sharing, and active participation, empowering participants to collectively learn about this important topic.
