The Engaging Active Hope workshop series explores practical ways to address climate change. The series draws on the work of the eco-philosopher Joanna Macy and is about finding and offering our best response to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world. At the heart of this workshop series is the idea that Active Hope is something we do rather than have. It involves being clear about what we hope for and then playing our role in the process of bringing that about. The journey of finding and offering our unique contribution to the Great Turning helps us to discover new strengths, open to a wider network of allies and experience a deepening of our aliveness.

How can we respond to the crisis of sustainability unfolding in our world? Active Hope addresses the challenges of climate change and draws on the work of the eco-philosopher Joanna Macy. The follow-up workshop series will offer concrete practices and tools to collectively transition to a more life-sustaining society. When our responses are guided by the intention to act for the healing of our world, the mess we are in not only becomes easier to face but our lives become more meaningful and satisfying. No prior experience or reading is required. If you are searching for ways to personally respond to the challenges of climate change, you are welcome!

This kick-off event is followed by a series of sessions designed to prepare participants to facilitate this work in their own settings using the materials from the Active Hope network and other practices created by Joanna Macy. Learn more
