Ecological Grief: Young Professionals Using Transformative Change to Build a Better Tomorrow

This toolkit was created through a collaboration between Parks Canada Agency (PCA) and the CPPCL for the IMPAC5 International Marine Protected Areas Congress in 2023. Led by youth at the front-lines of this topic who hold environmental and social expertise, this knowledge sharing session focused on ecological grief - feelings of sorrow and anguish stemming from climate change and biodiversity loss - and the journey towards transformative change. While challenging, discussions on ecological grief are becoming common, with a focus on turning sadness and sorrow into actionable solutions. This toolkit is a growing resource for us all to learn from each other.
