Climate Change Despair and Empowerment RoadShow and Workshop

The CLIMATE CHANGE DESPAIR AND EMPOWERMENT ROADSHOW with Kelly Tudhope will motivate people to take action against climate change in the wake of Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," The Stern Report, and the IPCC Report. This multi-media presentation focuses its discussion on the roles that public and personal denial, helplessness and despair play in the fight against climate change, and addresses the false and "business as usual" solutions being offered.

The one-day "Climate Change Despair & Empowerment" workshop, will offer experiential processes that generate empowerment. Through Joanna Macy's body of work known as "despair and empowerment" we allow ourselves to recognize our feelings about what is happening to our world. By acknowledging this level of our being rather than just our thoughts on the subject, people around the world have found that feelings of helplessness and hopelessness are transformed into inspired and empowered positive action.

There is a sliding scale fee($60-$80) for a day that includes a catered dinner.
