This 2-hour group workshop is specifically aimed for students. We will focus on emotions and thoughts and how to live with them. Are there ways to maintain your own balance and resilience whilst trying to cope with a constant stream of bad news and a feeling that so much more needs to be done? Together, we will create a safe place for sharing thoughts, connecting with others and finding our own ways face the emotions caused by the climate threat. The workshop consists of group discussions on specific themes as well as practical tips.

However, we will not be teaching one another how to live in an eco-friendly way or argue what actions should be taken to solve climate change. This means you can join the workshop without fear of judgement, no matter what your personal views or actions concerning these issues are, as long as you remain nonjudgmental towards others as well.

The workshop is led by study psychologist Sanni Saarimäki and Aalto chaplain Anu Morikawa.
