Maintaining Positive Well-being during Periods of Change: A ‘Voices for Well-being in Aquatic Sciences’ live presentation

Date/Time: Wednesday, 5 June, 2024, 12:30 to 14:00
Location: Hall of Ideas F

Lead Organizer: Cale Gushulak, University of Regina ([email protected])

The world is rapidly changing. Political instability, coupled with high costs of living and the ongoing environmental and climate change crises can have severe negative consequences for mental health and well-being of individuals and communities, including those of academic researchers. Early career researchers (ECRs) are particularly affected by these negative mental health and well-being outcomes due to aspects such as insecure employment, the expectation to be highly mobile (often between countries), and few institutional or local support systems. In this session of ‘Voices for Well-being in Aquatic Sciences,’ presented by ASLO’s Early Career Committee (ECC), participants will learn methods and strategies to improve their mental health and well-being by being adaptable in the context of rapid personal and global changes. Tools learned during this workshop will be applicable to the specific challenges faced by ECRs in the global aquatic science community.
