Who We Are

The Resilient Activist offers support for those who are fearful, anxious, fatigued or overwhelmed about climate disruption and environmental devastation.

We provide community-building and resilience tools with additional programs especially designed for environmental activists.

We are developing education for and partnership with mental health and wellness professionals who are committed to expanding their scope of expertise to include the emotional grief and anxiety related to climate change.

We believe that the world needs environmental stewards who have the resiliency to confront these difficult times with optimism and hope for the future.

Five Essentials for a Resilient World

Through the Five Essentials for a Resilient World, we address individual behavior from a well-rounded, holistic approach. These essentials can be interpreted externally, as culture shifts in everyday living, as well as internally for personal emotional and physical well-being.

In addition, we provide support for the emotional toll that climate change is having. This toll is now recognized by the American Psychological Association with new conditions such as solastalgia (pining for a lost environment), ecoanxiety, and pre-traumatic stress.

We teach resilience techniques and provide opportunities for people to share their anxiety and sorrow as they deepen their understanding of the extent of environmental destruction.
