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.
