Sackville Tribune - - TANTRAMAR -

Are you wor­ried and stressed about cli­mate change and the fu­ture of our com­mu­ni­ties and the planet? You are not alone and there are things we can do to ease our minds.

EOS Eco-en­ergy is part­ner­ing with IRIS Com­mu­nity Coun­selling and Con­sult­ing to put on a work­shop about how to cope with cli­mate stress. This first cli­mate stress work­shop is open to Tantra­mar-area teens aged 13 to 18 and will take place Satur­day, Nov. 10 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Open Sky Farm at 12 Folkins Dr. in Sackville.

“Par­tic­i­pants can chat about cli­mate change, ask ques­tions, share their thoughts, and learn tips for deal­ing with stress and anx­i­ety in a fun and sup­port­ive en­vi­ron­ment,” ex­plains Amanda Mar­lin, ex­ec­u­tive di­rec­tor with EOS.

“IRIS Com­mu­nity Coun­selling & Con­sult­ing is thrilled to have the op­por­tu­nity to part­ner with EOS Eco-en­ergy in help­ing to both ed­u­cate and equip our fu­ture gen­er­a­tion with the knowl­edge and skills to make bet­ter choices for them­selves and the en­vi­ron­ment,” says Krista Royama, of IRIS.
