Avoiding Burnout in Young Changemakers

How can you support young changemakers to develop coping skills to avoid activism burnout? Join our interactive session to find out.

About this Event

In recent years we are witnessing the devastation of Climate Change, Pandemics and Environmental Catastrophes on a scale that has never been experienced before. Young People are at the forefront of campaigning for system change whilst leading on social action to improve the lives of others in their community and beyond. But all of this can take a toll on the mental health of these young champions and can also lead to “burnout”. So we need to find ways to support young people to develop effective coping strategies in order to prevent long term harm.

Join this interactive workshop led by Prof Cathy Richards, Consultant Clinical Psychologist, Sarah Robertson, Operational Manager, YouthLink Scotland and See Me Young Champion as part of #IWill Scotland’s Power of Youth Festival which will:

  • Define climate anxiety and the potential effects of this on young people
  • Explore coping strategies
  • Provide a platform for participants to share practical solutions and knowledge
  • Highlight gaps or specific areas of concern
  • Share further sources of information and support

#IWill Scotland is a cross-sector movement, we work with organisations across all sectors in Scotland including youth work, voluntary orgs, health & social care, business, environment and schools & colleges.

This webinar will be relevant to organisations and practitioners who are either already working with young people (12-25 yrs) or who would like to explore how they can work with young people in the future.

The Zoom link for this session will be sent to you closer to the date.

We look forward to seeing you there!
