Nyyti News 2/2022
Winter is at its best. There has been a lot of snow all over the country lately. Some of us rejoice in the joys of snow while others would prefer to see less snow and more melted earth.
The environment and the changes that take place in it evoke emotions and thoughts. Identifying, accepting, and practicing emotional skills will help in the midst of environmental change and the climate crisis. Maintaining active hope is important in times of environmental crisis.
How does Nyyti activities relate to the environment?
The links between the environment and mental health are becoming increasingly important themes. Young people and students are particularly affected by environmental concerns and anxiety. It is important that Nyyti ry, as an association, work actively for the future of young people, because the environmental crisis threatens mental health in many ways. As a major player in mental health and wellbeing, Nyyti ry wants to work for an environmentally and mentally sustainable future in society.
During the environmental crisis, there is an increasing need to promote the relevance of emotional and interactional skills as well as the relevance of community, and compassion. Nyyti ry has a lot of expertise and tools to offer. In the newly completed environmental program, we have outlined key practices related to both influencing and the ecological choices of our own work community. The program has been prepared in collaboration between the staff and the Board.
