ACTIVE HOPE Responding to Climate Change

Would you like to make a positive difference for future generations of life on our planet, but feel overwhelmed, burned out, paralysed or numbed by the enormity of the challenges?

We are in a climate and environmental crisis. The recent IPCC report states that we are on “code red”. There is an urgency to act!

… yet action without reflection, calmness and clear thinking can be wasteful and burn you and others up. This course offers you a supported, focused place to think deeply for wise actions.

The Active Hope Course explores our human responses to this environmental crisis and how you can move forwards resourced and courageous, to make a meaningful impact, however small.

This workshop is a safe place to be with our feelings, helping us to stay grounded, connected and responsive to what’s happening in our lives, our communities and our world. Unless we have spaces to feel our responses to the destruction in our world we can easily feel paralysed or numb – and not take the necessary action to prevent more harm.

Course is held online on Thursday evenings 5.30 – 8.30 (UK time zone) 7Oct – 21Oct – 4Nov – 18Nov – 2Dec – 9Dec

Participants are expected to commit to the whole course. The course will be on Zoom.

It is highly interactive and based on the work of Joanna Macy and Chris Johnstone. The group will be facilitated by Jeannie Hodder, Leadership Coach and Facilitator.

Spaces are limited (max 12 places) so booking is essential.

To make a booking or for more information Email Jeannie at, and please include a few sentences about why you want to participate and what you hope to achieve from joining the group.

“This work needs to penetrate further and deeper into communities, companies, society. It is so positive, practical and life affirming. It must touch more places that are still stuck in ‘Business as Usual’ so we can reduce our carbon emissions and thrive.”
Catherine Andrews – Former Participant

“This is a lovely course. It really helped me turn my feeling of utter hopelessness and impotence into something constructive. As a result of the course I became a trustee for a community sustainability organisation and a local project activist in my own funny way. A mere drop in the ocean – but the ocean is made of drops. Really recommend” Former Participant

Presenter / Host Bio

Jeannie Hodder MA (Psychological Coaching) Jeannie is a Leadership Coach, Facilitator and Trainer, working primarily with Executives in global organisations. She has run many Team and Leadership development programmes in the outdoors in Snowdonia, the mountains of North Wales. She is committed to working with leaders to explore how to respond to climate change in sustainable and creative ways. Her coaching provides a reflective space for people to learn from their experiments with new behaviours in their daily lives. This process engages the whole person (mind, body and emotions). Through this process her clients become even more impactful and authentic leaders. Jeannie runs groups, reconnecting people with nature, and she finds this work profoundly empowering, enabling people to respond appropriately to our changing world. Her work gives people a sense of gratitude, empowerment and capacity, to stand up and to do what they are called to do, even in the face of environmental crises; to engage where previously they had felt powerless. Core to this work is the importance of reconnecting back to our core values and beliefs, our community and to the natural world.
