There is still time to reserve your ticket for our very first Climate Grief & Eco-Anxiety workshop.


Climate Grief & Anxiety: Building Resilience Among Climate Researchers is an original curriculum created by the founders of BeDo, addressing the unique mental health challenges faced by climate researchers and those working in related fields.

Whether you're working on renewable energy or passionate about water security, chances are you’ve felt the mental and emotional effects of working on climate-related issues.

This 2.5 hour workshop will be facilitated by BeDo co-founders Daillen Culver and Megan Douglas, and is designed for researchers from a variety of disciplines, at all stages of their career.

Together, we will explore common psychological responses to the realities of a changing climate. We aim to acknowledge and validate the many, often contradictory emotional responses and offer applied techniques for coping with climate insecurity.

Through guided reflections and group discussions, we'll explore strategies for resilience that are rooted in mindfulness, compassion, and an ethos of interconnectedness.

Participants will come away with a better understanding of climate-related mental health challenges, concrete tools for enhancing researcher resilience, and a collection of resources for further exploration.


We will explore:

--The myriad psychological responses to climate change, including grief, anxiety, rage, fear, fatigue, etc. and their mechanics

--The advantages and shortcomings of narratives of 'resilience'

--Climate justice and and the relationship between social and environmental precarity

--The emergent field of compassion science and embodied compassion cultivation practices as drivers for collective wellbeing

--An ethos of interconnectedness as a framework for more innovative/holistic climate solutions


All participants will receive:

--A comprehensive PDF resource package

--A personalised certificate of completion

We are committed to making this workshop accessible to every audience. If the £5 ticket fee presents a financial obstacle, please email hello [at] gowithbedo.com to enquire about scholarships. Attendance for the full duration of this workshop is required to receive certificate of completion.
