Champions and Change Makers

Project Webpage Update - Champions and Changemakers

The Champions and Changemakers project aims to build the capacity and resilience of groups and people in the environment sector in SA. We’ve put together resources to help you be effective environmental champions.

Self care is fundamental to our ability to be champions for the environment and make a real difference. This handbook covers preventing and addressing burnout, dealing with environmental grief and self-care strategies for environmental professionals and volunteers.
