Facing the Future: Cultivating Climate Empowerment Amidst the Climate-Crisis

Troubled by the uncertain world ahead? Concerned for future generations because of the climate-crisis? Then this webinar is for you! This experiential webinar will allow participants to learn and practice long-term visioning and reflection to cultivate hope despite uncertainty.

Without a sense of a better future, it can be difficult to make decisions in the present. The climate-crisis impacts mental health and career decision-making, leading to feelings of hopelessness and uncertainty. By exploring an intergenerational worldview, we can both identify hopes for a distant future and tangibles steps in the present to transition towards a more equitable world

Learn about the benefits of seeing career decisions in the context of an intergenerational worldview and how this approach fosters hope for the future and empowers us in the present.

Participants will:

  • Practice exercises to cultivate hope in the world ahead.
  • Envision and identify subsequent steps towards this future
  • Explore how mental health and ecological change impacts career decision-making
  • Learn about career development resources to help navigate life on a changing planet.

About the Facilitator:

Trevor Lehmann (MEd, CCC) is Acting President of the Climate-Informed Counsellors Chapter of CCPA and a Career Consultant with the University of Manitoba. His work specialized in ecological distress, career development, grief and loss. You can read his open-access Imperfect Guide to Career and Climate and his other writings at

Help us cultivate a community we all enjoy by reviewing and following the Code of Conduct.  

Our Purpose  

Thank you for being a part of the online CDPC social learning community. To ensure that all members have the best possible experience, we have a few ground rules that we ask everyone to adhere to. This code of conduct applies equally to every person in the community and is intended to foster an online space that is inclusive, safe, and welcoming to all. 

Community Rules 

Be welcoming 

We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. We aim to create and facilitate a community that promotes excellence and innovation in career and workforce development. Please extend respect to all members; we all come from different backgrounds and levels of knowledge and there is no such thing as a stupid question. 

Be respectful 

We won’t all agree all the time, but when we disagree don’t let those disagreements turn into personal attacks. A community where people feel uncomfortable or threatened will not be a productive one. Instead, when having discussions in the online community, create productive conversations around the content being presented, not the person behind the content. Any post that is determined to be “hate speech” towards any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation.  

Hate Speech could include and is not limited to:  

  • Violent threats or language directed against another person 
  • Discriminatory jokes, language, or materials 
  • Defamatory or abusive language or materials 
  • Profane or illegal materials 
  • Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior 

A good rule of thumb is to never post anything that you wouldn’t be comfortable with the world seeing or that you wouldn’t want anyone knowing came from you. We ask that you keep in mind the focus of this community, which is building excellence and innovation in career and workforce development for all individuals.  

Be considerate of the purpose of the community 

This community will be focused on building excellence and discussing innovation in the career and workforce development field. The goal of this community is to communicate goals, challenges, constructive feedback, and questions in relation to career and workforce development. The community should be a place for continued learning and development as well as a place to discuss the future of our field (solicitation without written consent by the Project or Advisory team, is strictly prohibited). Any post that is determined to be soliciting any individual or group will be deleted, and the user account may be locked until an investigation regarding the post has been concluded. The user may be given a written warning or removed from the CPDC community platform depending on the findings of the investigation. 

Post your discussions or documents in the most appropriate group or topic 

Make reasonable efforts to ensure that posts and materials are allocated to the appropriate group or topic. This will prevent cluttering the community and make it easier for everyone to find the information that they are seeking. Individuals who do this repeatedly will be contacted by one of the group admins and asked to follow these guidelines.  

Privacy and Release of Information  

CDPC-CEDC will not release your information to any third-party agencies.  

Group Admins 

There are four group admins who are available to you. Below are their names and their spoken language. 

Heather Powell | Anglophone 

Gabrielle St-Cyr | Francophone/Anglophone 

Florence Desrochers | Francophone/Anglophone

Muriel Andoblé-Yao | Francophone

Thank you and welcome to the CDPC Community!
