Sustaining Ourselves

The environmental space can put a lot of pressure on the people who are doing the work to create a more sustainable world with resources that can feel very scarce. How do we take care of ourselves and our community to keep our energy up in the long term and address the issue of burn out. Join a facilitated peer conversation to share resources and perspectives about how we create a sector that promotes the sustainability of its people

We have selected crafts made mostly from cupboard staples with a few additions, please let us know if you have trouble sourcing any of the ingredients. Our crafts will be gifted in recycled jars – you will need 3 recycled jars for this workshop, plus optional decorations such as circles of material to place on top of your jar, ribbon, string, gift tags or glass paints.

*Meeting links and material list will be sent out prior to the workshop. Please check your inbox and junk folder*
