Emotions / Agency


A conversation-based engagement tool to move your audiences from climate anxiety to agency.

What to use this tool for

To engage audiences (e.g., supporters, donors, volunteers or even staff) in conversations that enable them to face their emotions about crises like climate change, fostering a safe space for emotional exploration, reflection, and actionable steps towards change.

When to use this tool

2. Think: 
Facilitate a shift in perspective, encouraging participants to explore the issue with newfound empathy and understanding.
