Often university students feel isolated and lonely with their existential thoughts. Hence, there is a strong need to develop collective ways of sharing emotions concerning questions related with the meaning of the studies. We claim that if there isn’t real dialogue between people, students will not be able to face local or global scale threats without a risk of burning out or becoming too cynical to act.

Climate anxiety groups have become successful in connecting the mindfulness-based tools as well as ways of fostering self-compassion with the real context. In the workshop, the participants can experience the practises of the climate anxiety workshop and test how the contemplative, dialogical methods help to sustain through societal changes and global challenges. Practises promote self-care and skills for compassionate dialogue.

Including discussion about how the kind of methods can be integrated into teaching and spread the mindset to build compassionate academic community.
