Virtual Good Mood Cafes: hosted by Mind - Conversations with ARU’s Sustainability Society.
Ever experienced eco-anxiety?
Anxiety around environmental issues can stem from experiencing, being at risk of, or having loved ones at risk of climate-related extreme weather, including hurricanes, droughts, and wildfires. In theory "Eco anxiety" is growing both in usage, and in the number of people recognising it in themselves. The good news? you are far from being alone.
Most recently, a survey by environmental charity Global Action Plan revealed one in three teachers is seeing high levels of climate anxiety in students, while just over three quarters (77%) of students say that thinking about climate change makes them anxious. Whilst uncomfortable, it is a chance that once aware you can then do something about it. Want to learn more? Join the Good Mood Cafe: Eco-anxiety; Conversations with the ARU sustainability Society.
Weekly online Good Mood Cafes offer informal wellbeing support, while connecting you to other students from ARU. They offer a positive and safe space to share interests, skills or experiences. Feeling connected is key to positive wellbeing and resilience.
It’s OK not to be OK, so you don’t have to be in a good mood to come along to our online Good Mood Cafes – but we hope everyone will leave feeling better than when they joined.
A Zoom link will be sent to your registered email on the day of the session.
