How to have… More Resilience with Ben Carter : Thursday 4th June – 6.45 – 8.45
In this 2 hour workshop we will share tools to build resilience, practice some of them, and try out new strategies to look after ourselves. Benefits of improved resilience include a longer and more satisfying life, a greater sense of control, reduced mental health challenges, improved physical well being and greater cognitive function. Whatever you want; from reduced stress or improved creativity to building a satisfying career or anything else, resilience supports you in navigating the bumps along the way.
Could you be a Climate Perks pilot pioneer?– Tuesday 11th June – 6.00 – 8.00 pm
Where: 10:10 HQ – 8 Delancey Passage, Camden, NW1 7NN (5 min walk from Camden Station)
Reducing the amount we fly is one of the most impactful behavioural changes we as regular travelers can make to cut carbon, but time is a huge barrier to opting for flight-free holidays. Cue Climate Perks; a scheme enabling employers to offer paid ‘journey days’ to empower staff to choose low-carbon holiday travel. The perfect solution for those who love to travel the world and protect it too.
6heads and 10:10 are both passionate about climate action, and the innovative solutions to make that as easy as possible. We have teamed up for an interactive session all about how to get involved with Climate Perks.
This event is open to employees or employers who are interested in joining the pilot scheme and want to find more and change-makers who can champion this project through their networks. Places are strictly limited – register here
