Connect with Peers

Connect with other academics who feel a disconnect between their professional role and the urgency of humanity’s colliding environmental and social crises.

Join fellow academics in a workshop exploring the psychological impacts of working on the worsening social-environmental crisis, and how to navigate the challenges that come with confronting business-as-usual in academia and elsewhere.

As a safe space for academics who are questioning their academic role in these crises, the purpose of the workshop is to come together and collectively reflect on the different emotional and professional struggles and tensions each of you are experiencing. Whether you already have a clear sense of how you want to deepen your engagement and are experiencing difficulties, or are questioning what your role should be, join like-minded colleagues to share your perspectives. Together, you will support each other to take opportunities for action and question entrenched practices that are complicit in harm, while maintaining professional credibility.

In 2023, we will launch monthly practice-focused online spaces in which academics seeking to further transform their research, teaching, engagement or institutions will be able to connect with others with a similar focus, and support each other in small groups to navigate challenges and opportunities.
