Talk Description

Healing Environmental Despair: Finding Hope and Empowerment in Protecting Wilderness

Mishka Lysack, a professor with the University of Calgary, will be presenting on the relatively new and timely subject of ecological grief. As people become more aware of the seriousness of environmental issues facing us today, many become discouraged and despairing of the possibilities available for protecting wilderness and the planet. This presentation will outline the responses that many of us experience, and will explore how we can find a renewed sense of hope, commitment, and empowerment as we work to protect wilderness and the web of life on Earth.
