Charles' HEART for climate action
I am passionate about Psychology for a Safe Climate! As Vice President it has been wonderful to be part of this inspiring group for almost 10 years. We have tried to help those actively involved with the climate emergency- activists, researchers, policymakers and communities- and we see the reality of climate anxiety, ecotrauma, ecological grief and burnout in our workshops. The terrible bushfires over the summer showed us how climate change is personal, here and now. Though we are all suffering in this covid era, the climate crisis will be more devastating unless we take emergency action. Our work is going to be needed more than ever and we have had massive demand since the bushfires. We have worked on a voluntary basis but we now need to increase our capabilities. We need funds so we can have paid staff. Please support our work by donating to my CrowdRaiser and join our HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care which I hope will be very enriching of connection to nature, self and others. I would also be very grateful if you could share the link to this CrowdRaiser page to your friends and family. This way they can find out about our work, and by donating can take part in our Heart for climate action 10 days of creative care.

Libby's Heart for climate action
Dear friends, as many of you know, I am a founding member of ‘Psychology for a Safe Climate’. Since 2010, we have been working to increase understanding and engagement with climate change. We have run workshops for climate activists , climate scientists, policy makers, and local council members in the areas of grief, burn out, and eco-anxiety. We give seminars, talks and have published two booklets about speaking about climate change. We have a website with many available resources. (psychologyforasafeclimate.org) Now in 2020, the demand for PSC's work has outstripped the volunteer committee's ability to keep up! PSC needs to move toward hiring some paid staff so that they can continue to the offer the quality programs for activists and climate workers and to respond to the growing requests from psychologists and community members asking for additional support. PSC needs more funding to make that happen. So please support PSC's work by donating to my CrowdRaiser and signing up for the HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care. I appreciate every cent received toward this organisation I care so much about. I will, of course, be participating in the ten-days of creative practices myself, and hope it will really be supportive for anyone who is looking to engage more deeply with their feelings about the climate crisis and to find that deeper motivation needed to take action. The ten days are filled with invitations for creative exploration as well as supportive self-care practices that will invite you into deeper connection with yourself, others and nature. I am passionate about my work in PSC, and therefore I am hoping to help raise money towards the transition from a voluntary organisation to one that can employ administrative staff and other professional psychological health workers to continue and grow the work of our organisation. Also, I would be very grateful for you to share the link to HEART for climate action with your friends and family. The more people who engage with climate change the better! For me, the key to creating the deeper shift we need to see toward a life-sustaining culture and a genuine movement for climate justice requires deep personal work and reflection as well as concrete political action. I believe Psychology for a Safe Climate blends these two facets and it is exciting to work with like-minded people in an emotionally nourishing team.

Bron's HEART for Climate Action
Dear Friends, THANK YOU for supporting this organisation that's so close to my heart!  Psychology for a Safe Climate has been a volunteer-based and run organisation for the last ten years, and it really is incredible what they've contributed in that time to the broader conversation in Australia about climate crisis, eco-anxiety, climate grief and the need for a deeper engagement with climate change. Now in 2020, the demand for PSC's work has outstripped the volunteer committee's ability to keep up! PSC needs to move toward hiring some paid staff so that they can continue to the offer the quality programs for activists and climate workers and to respond to the growing requests from psychologists and community members for additional support. PSC needs more funding to make that happen. So please support PSC's work by donating to my CrowdRaiser and signing up for the HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care, I appreciate every cent received toward this organisation I care so much about! My Journey with PSC After many years feeling anxious and at a loss about climate change, and how I could contribute, I was delighted to discover PSC. I've now been volunteering with them for over 8 years & enjoyed every bit. Together we have designed and run workshops for climate activists, local council, environmental groups, climate scientisis, policy makers in the areas of climate related grief, burnout and eco-anxiety. We give talks at conferences and seminars, and more recently webinars (thanks COVID!). We have published several booklets, our most recent in response to the devestating bushfire crisis this last summer. And we distribute a monthly newsletter packed with goodies for reading and listening.  When climate change has worn heavily on my mind & heart, our PSC community has been there. Sharing creative processes and activities that have offered me space to reflect, share, connect and feel rejuvenated to keep going. As the years roll by, the need for PSC offerings grows. We are now at a critical point, and need your help. At the heart of this CrowdRaiser is to enable us to sustain and boost our offerings focused on strengthening resilience and emotional engagement with climate change - for individuals, organisations, psychology and counselling therapists, and communities.  Every and any contribution counts. Just as a tiny, precious snowflake can trigger an avalanche, so too can each and every one of us make a difference. Our hearts and actions create ripple effects that inspire and transform lives for generations to come. So the good news is that there are many ways you can support PSC!! 1. Make a donation to this CrowdRaiser. I know times are tough, for so many of us right now around finances.  This has been an extraordinary year. So anything you can give will help :-)  2. Spread the Word! Share this CrowdRaiser with your network of friends, family and colleagues. Tell them what climate change and emotional wellbeing means to you. You'll be surprised by how many reply with I feel that way too :-)  3. Join us for HEART for climate action, 10 days of creative care.  Our hope is that this will be supportive for anyone who is looking to engage more deeply with their feelings about the climate crisis and to find that deeper motivation needed to take action. The ten days are filled with invitations for creative exploration as well as supportive self-care practices that will invite you into deeper connection with yourself, others and nature. I'll of course be joining in the 10 days, which during these stage 4 restrictions I feel will be a welcome relief.  Hope you join me, follow our story & stay connected with PSC 😊 Much Love, Bron

Mareshell's HEART for Climate Action
Psychology for a Safe Climate has been a volunteer-based and run organisation for the last ten years, and it really is incredible what they've contributed in that time to the broader conversation in Australia about climate crisis, eco-anxiety, climate grief and the need for a deeper engagement with climate change. Now in 2020, the demand for PSC's work has outstripped the volunteer committee's ability to keep up! PSC needs to move toward hiring some paid staff so that they can continue to the offer the quality programs for activists and climate workers and to respond to the growing requests from psychologists and community members for additional support. PSC needs more funding to make that happen. So please support PSC's work by donating to my CrowdRaiser and signing up for the HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care (link  here). I appreciate every cent received toward this organisation I believe provides people with the tools and supportive environment required to generate climate action.   Why PSC for me?  I am raising funds for Psychology for a Safe Climate (PSC) because I deeply believe that facts and figures about climate change alone will not solve our climate crises. People protect what they love.   My exposure to PSC has been through my sister, who is a psychologist and integral volunteer member with PSC. I have had opportunities to participate in PSC workshops. One workshop utilised art therapy - it was incredibly liberating to use art to capture my emotional journey and current state of mind regarding climate change. It opened the door to discussions about the pain and suffering I experienced and helped clear blockages regarding perceived personal inaction. Climate change is a key threat to many of Australia’s unique wildlife. The Black Summer fires were a devastating event - and a personal time of anxiety and sadness. As an ecologist, working passionately to protect our threatened species, my energy and drive is buoyed by wandering in Nature and bringing other people into Nature. I deeply believe that spending time in nature - connecting, observing, being curious - brings a wealth of positive outcomes including physical and mental health benefits (and science is now supporting this belief!). I find I become more creative, energised, open to new ideas, calmer, resilient, compassionate and positive. Ultimately, these experiences deepen our connections to, and love for the natural world. And, generate the desire and will to contribute towards solving our climate crises - protecting all life from further harm.  I highly recommend signing up for PSC’s HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care. The ten days are filled with invitations for creative exploration as well as supportive self-care practices that will invite you into deeper connection with yourself, others and nature and to find that deeper motivation needed to take action. People need a supportive environment and self-care to come to grips with the climate crises. For me, an inspiring aspect of PSC is the workshops that they run for climate activists and those working in the climate field as researchers, policymakers, and local council members to support them with the grief, burnout and anxiety that can accompany working on climate change in a daily way. PSC provides space for self-care, self-compassion and creates a supportive community, which is an integral part of how people will be able to truly look this crisis in the eye and find ways to take effective action.  So, I am also raising funds for PSC because I am inspired by their work. There are three key ways you can get involved and support Psychology for a Safe Climate:  1. Sign up for the HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care by making a donation of $40 or more, and filling out this form. Following your sign up you will receive all the information and materials you will need to participate. 2. Make a donation to HEART for climate action today!

Bianca's HEART for Climate Action
Hello friends, I am raising funds for Psychology for a Safe Climate (PSC) because I deeply resonate with their work. Like the members of PSC, I have a strong love for the earth alongside a growing grief of the impacts of climate degradation on the earth and it's inhabitants. I am inspired by PSC's work of offering resources of resilience and care to those impacted by climate disasters, ecoanxiety and those working to protect the climate in activism spaces. Whilst not a member of the team, I have been watching their movements for a while and am excited to raise funds for a not-for-profit whose work I envision to become increasingly more vital. As someone with a wild love for the earth and passion for improving the mental wellbeing of others, I hope that you will support me in raising money. I truly believe that, to become informed caretakers of this earth, we must come to learn our inherent belonging to the earth, to each other, to our physical bodies and to the Indigenous histories of this land. Whilst COVID-19 is keeping us physically separate and potentially exacerbating challenging mental health experiences, I see this fundraiser as a perfect opportunity to deepen that sense of belonging. By donating and signing up for HEART for Climate Action 10 days of Creative Care, you'll receive daily invitations to deepen your connection with the earth and your own inner world. I'll be signing up too and sharing my journey with all the other souls participating from 20th August- 30th August. A second round of this nurtuing invitation will be offered from 20th September- 30th September, but you can sign up and participate anytime. Any amount that you can give, I know, will be greatly appreciated by PSC. I hope that you will come on this journey to deepening appreciation and presence with nature. Now, more than ever, nature offers the pathway to being at home with ourselves and the world. I would be very grateful for you to share the link to this CrowdRaiser page to your friends and family. The more people who can help the better! Thank you dearly. More info about the fundraiser below:   Who is Psychology for a Safe Climate? Psychology for a Safe Climate works to increase understanding and engagement with climate change. Through our contribution, we help people to find the motivation to act, rather than react with denial or despair. How can you get involved in HEART for climate action?

Beth's Heart for climate action fundraiser
Psychology for a Safe Climate has been a volunteer-based and run organisation for the last ten years, and it really is incredible what they've contributed in that time to the broader conversation in Australia about climate crisis, eco-anxiety, climate grief and the need for a deeper engagement with climate change. Now in 2020, the demand for PSC's work has outstripped the volunteer committee's ability to keep up! PSC needs to move toward hiring some paid staff so that they can continue to the offer the quality programs for activists and climate workers and to respond to the growing requests from psychologists and community members for additional support. PSC needs more funding to make that happen. So please support PSC's work by donating to my CrowdRaiser and signing up for the HEART for climate action 10 days of creative care, I appreciate every cent received toward this organisation I care so much about. I will, of course, be participating in the ten-day creative process myself, (and have been involved in designing it) and hope it will really be supportive for anyone who is looking to engage more deeply with their feelings about the climate crisis and to find that deeper motivation needed to take action. The ten days are filled with invitations for creative exploration as well as supportive self-care practices that will invite you into deeper connection with yourself, others and nature. I am raising funds for Psychology for a Safe Climate because I am inspired by their work. The difference they have made to so many people in the climate movement already is extraordinary and I know that as things get worse there are so many others that would benefit from their work - especially other psychologists and the wider community who are beginning to grapple with the very real impacts of climate change such as the devastating bushfires over the last Summer.  Also, I would be very grateful for you to share the link to HEART for climate action with your friends and family. The more people who engage with climate change the better! My story with PSC I first encountered Psychology for a Safe Climate (PSC) in 2013 when I was working on my PhD that explored the psychological dimensions of climate change and I came across an article written by one of their members. I was immediately inspired by the vital work they were doing at that time to highlight the importance of emotions and psychology of individuals and our society was responding (or more to the point, not responding!) to climate change. For me, the key to creating the deeper shift we need to see toward a life-sustaining culture and a genuine movement for climate justice requires deep personal work and reflection as well as concrete political action. I believe these two facets support each other and it was exciting to encounter an organisation that was working on both of these fronts who were also based in Australia. In 2015 I gave a small presentation at their conference and met lots of other engaged psychologists, activists and thinkers who wanted to explore the deeper terrain of the climate crisis conundrum. So it was only natural that when I moved to Melbourne in 2018 I sought out PSC to find out what they were doing and with the hope of getting more involved. In July of 2018, I joined the committee as a volunteer and began to help with facilitating the workshops that they run for climate activists. For me, the workshops we run is one of the most inspiring aspects of what PSC has grown to do in recent years. PSC works with activists and those working in the climate field as researchers, policymakers, and local council members to support them with the grief, burnout and anxiety that can accompany working on climate change in a daily way. Certainly, my experience of writing and researching on climate change for four years during my PhD illuminated the critical importance of self-care, self-compassion and supportive community as an integral part of how we truly look this crisis in the eye and find ways to take effective action. Right now these more cultural and psychological aspects of climate change action are not widely understood or invested in by the government and environmental NGOs even though they will be critical for the transformation our society needs to undergo to adequately respond to the issue. So please, if there's one thing you do for climate change action today, make a donation to PSC!
