Our Vision

The Resilient Activist envisions our future generations living in a healthy, diverse, and regenerative environment.

Our Mission

The Resilient Activist is a resource for all things environmental and nature-connected.

We provide support and resilience tools for environmental activists.

What We Do

We provide “EnviroTips” – simple, straightforward answers to questions about living mindfully in relationship with the environment.

We offer uplifting and nurturing community-building articles, stories, and programs to give voice and support to those who share our passion for a sustainable, flourishing, nature-connected future.

Joyful and resilient activists are good for life … our own lives and the life of the planet.

Important Issues

The emotional toll that climate change is having on our society has caught the attention of those who work in the mental health fields.

In 2010, the American Psychological Association released a 230-page report titled, “Interface Between Psychology and Global Climate Change.”  In March, 2017, they published another document, “Mental Health and Our Changing Climate: Impacts, Implications, and Guidance.

This paper included new diagnostic codes for mental health concerns related to climate change and environmental grief.  Terms like ecoanxiety, pre-traumatic stress, and solastalgia (pining for a lost environment) are devastating emotional conditions that affect those who are passionate about a healthy, sustainable planet and who are deeply concerned about the negative impacts of human activities on our ecosystems and non-human beings we love.

Principles

We are a diverse group of nature-loving souls aiming to live in a way that nurtures our own well-being in alignment with the well-being of our planet and to uplift others who are working towards these same goals.

We are guided by principles of kindness, compassion, communication, diversity, deep understanding, transparency, and ongoing education about the grief and angst that activists experience over the pressing issues surrounding Earth’s environmental and social justice needs.

Charitable Status

The Resilient Activist is a public charity recognized as tax-exempt by the IRS under Section 501(c)(3). We rely on donations, grants, and endowments to provide our content and programs.

We are deeply grateful for your support!
