Today’s world of climate change, pandemics and social uncertainty can evoke significant eco-anxiety, despair and helplessness. Blending on-line and community-based ‘authentic learning’ with eco-social pedagogies of active hope can empower students with agency, skills, and practical resources to participate in critical dialogue and explore local solutions for planetary and personal well-being.
