    5. Well-Being of Youth and Young Adults Parenting and educating young people as they transition back to in-person learning and jobs this year will likely be both joyful and challenging. A panel of experts will discuss approaches that parents, caregivers, and educators can take to support youth, including strategies to promote resilience, resourcefulness, and creating environments that facilitate a sense of belonging and agency—especially for youth of color. They will also discuss the risks of excessive pressure to succeed and countering helicopter parenting, as well as ways that schools can implement trauma-informed, equity-promoting approaches that foster wellness and healing justice.

    6. From Climate Stress to Activation: The Critical Role of the Health Professional The climate crisis is impacting health, and health care professionals have a pivotal role as advocates for change. The climate crisis must be mitigated by vast reductions in carbon use, including by the medical industry, which is responsible for 8% of global green house gas emissions. Physicians will share how they have promoted advocacy, as well as effective ways of messaging, and how leaders serve as trusted sources of information, educators for policymakers and local institutions, and change agents in their own institutional or governments policies. Healthcare professionals and others can help move the public and leaders from distress into active roles that will have reverberating impacts on our societal change. This session will end with a meditation.
