Recharge & Resist +
A two-day festival for UK activists that champions self-care and sustainable grassroots campaigning.
Let’s be real; activism is exhausting.
Every year we lose valuable members of our community as they drop out due to burnout. Navigating social and political injustices, combined with the emotional demands of campaigning and the high expectations we often hold ourselves to can lead to a breaking point, making it impossible to sustain the energy and passion for the causes we care about.
Recharge and Resist Festival believes we don’t have to accept burnout as a fact of activist life. We can and should be reevaluating our approach to campaigning, and consider how taking care of our own and each other’s mental and physical wellbeing can support a more sustainable activism.
