Shake Up The Establishment’s Climate Dreaming Journal initiative is inspired by a conceptual framework we’ve developed called, Rest, Recovery and Resistance (the new ‘3Rs’). Work under this framework is dedicated towards investing in the growth and wellbeing of climate justice activists and organizers, particularly youth. Our Climate Dreaming Journal is an interactive, guided experience for fellow community organizers and engaged citizens to partake in structured activities that centre upon making time for rest, promoting recovery from burnout and celebrating sustained actions of resistance. Our team knows from experience that these are all critical steps towards actively addressing and mitigating eco-grief and anxiety while also proactively centering a decolonized approach to mental health via community care.
