Trauma informed climate action with Eav Brennan

Today we welcome Eav, fellow Climactic Collective podcaster and environmental educator, living in Sydney.

Today we welcome Eav, fellow Climactic Collective podcaster and environmental educator, living in Sydney. Her life journey has been marked by encounters with nature and periods of struggle, that as we will discover steered her in the direction of being a science communicator, an improvisor, crafter and artist. Eav Joined Climactic in March 2020 & she reached out to me, with a mutual passion for caring about our mental health as we take action on climate change. Her focus is on advocating for our climate community & groups to move forward together with a trauma informed frame. In this chat Eav shares her own lived experience through dark and challenging periods of life where we hear how connection – with others and the natural world – and time to reflect through the lens of understanding, formed the foundation, and the stage, for healing, grieving and going forth in a way that is true to herself, that bring her meaning and purpose. Be sure to listen in a comfortable place, or perhaps as you wander through nature, to allow the many layers of this conversation sink in.
