Resources for Resilient Families and Ecospiritual Kids

Ecospirituality supports well-being in people of all ages. Our allies at The Resilient Activist have great resources for nurturing kids to maintain their resilience through a healthy relationship to living Nature. These include an upcoming class for families, Nature Stories videos and recommended activities, plus links to research on the relationship between climate, nature connection, and mental health for young people.

Child Hardship Updates

Child Hardship Updates

Levels of child hardship – hunger and housing insecurity – associated with the Covid pandemic are being under-reported. Novasutras Uplifters in the Child Hardship Fact Force are assembling information to help organizations in the United States come together and prevent the impending tragedies of eviction, hunger and homelessness that threaten millions of children. Paul Schaafsma has investigated levels of child food and housing insecurity associated with (but not caused by) the pandemic, as revealed in the Census Bureau’s “Household Pulse Survey,” conducted at regular intervals since April of last year. Paul has also looked at the recent Covid Relief Bill, to realistically assess how much difference it will make for millions of children who are most in need. These updates will be discussed in the Child Hardship Fact Force meeting this Tuesday.
