Climate Connections: Amidst the Darkening
"A space to talk about how you feel in the context of the world and its troubles, celebrating beauty, and connecting with other local young people who care"
- 2021 Participant
The Living Projects is pleased to announce the launch of our 'Climate Connections: Amidst the Darkening' series, beginning in April and running until November 2022.
Every month we will be holding a day at Pondfield for young adults to gather, play, grieve and deepen our connection to each other and the land. You can come to one day or the whole series.
Each day will weave nature-connection, Work That Reconnects and a land-based skill-share activity. There will also be plenty of time to connect with others, share food, and enjoy the beautiful natural setting. In the summer months, we will also extend our time into the evening and enjoy a fire circle, songs, storytelling & sauna!
Who is this for?
These days are for young adults (18-40ish) who are concerned about the social and environmental crises of our time. These days will provide space to share our concerns with others from our local area, develop friendships and a supportive community to face these challenges together. Together, we will be experiencing and learning powerful tools to transform ecoanxiety into an increased sense of wellbeing and empowerment. Most of all, the days will be fun - with laughter, games, connection and silliness a high priority!
"A really supportive, warm, sensitively held space to share and connect around the state of the world, and remember our belonging"
