Event Details

Your stories about caring for Planet Earth could help tackle the nature and climate emergencies. Authentic communication and creativity are among the most important tools we all have.

(We’ve added a waiting list as this event is now sold out. Please feel free to add your name and we will contact you closer to the time if spaces are available.  And we will let you know when the next sessions are scheduled.)


Please join our free workshop and put a couple of hours in your diary between 10am-12noon on Saturday 17 June to take the time to put into words your love, fear, anger and hope for our Planet. What would you say to someone who is struggling with eco grief and climate anxiety? How can you help yourself if you are that person? Read some of the short stories we have collected so far.

Authentic life stories are powerful and there so are many ways to tell them. If more of us tell our stories about our connections to nature, more people will hear us and some will start to explore their own connections.

This workshop is a tool for you to find or to support your voice – what resonates with you is important when you express yourself in writing. With pen and paper, you will be guided through various writing exercises, followed by the opportunity, if you wish, to share some of your writings with the group.

At the end of the workshop we will focus on ‘How to keep well in an age of climate and nature emergencies.’ This might inspire you to write a short piece for the Daily Reading for Earth after the workshop . In offering this workshop, we wish to support your personal writing as well as potentially the creation of more short pieces for our Daily Readings for Earth with the aim of supporting those struggling with eco-sorrow and climate anxiety.

The workshop will be led by published writer Gazelle Buchholtz .

Eco Anxious Resilient Peer Support is a new and developing project from The Surefoot Effect CIC focussed on creating and sharing mental wellbeing resilience tools for people who strive for enlightened and just societies that respect Earth and all life. Have a look at our self care planning tool
