WCA Youth Climate Anxiety Workshop with Barnardo’s
Friday 5 March at 4.00 pm
The Wiltshire Climate Alliance Youth Group has organised a workshop with Barnardo’s Healthy Minds Wiltshire on coping with climate anxiety. We will aim for the workshop to be between 45mins and 1 hour in length.
The team at Barnardo’s work with young people aged 5-18 so the workshop is aimed at this age range. For safety reasons, we ask that young people under 14 have permission from a guardian/parent and their parent/guardian may be present at the event.
Whilst the team at Barnardo’s will share with us coping strategies that can be applied to climate anxiety, it is important to note that anxiety comes in many different forms, and these strategies will be useful for coping with other types of anxiety. We will also look at breathing and guided meditation.
We will send out a list of resources after the workshop to signpost you to where you can access further support. This event is aimed at under 18’s but if you are over this age and would like to receive these resources, please register (click your age range) and we will get these to you.
There will be a Q&A at the end of the workshop so we are asking for you to please send in any questions that you have BEFORE the workshop by filling in this anonymous google form HERE.
Do not hesitate to reach out and email for any further information.
Zoom links will be sent shortly before the event. Register below now! We look forward to seeing you there!
