Mindful Climate Action


MCA Logo


Mindful Climate Action (MCA) is a response to the climate crisis that combines mindfulness meditation with education on climate change and sustainability to reduce carbon footprint for personal and planetary health. The MCA initiative is the first of its kind to incorporate mindfulness with climate education, and to examine the relationship between an individual’s carbon footprint and health.

Since 2014, CIMSS has collaborated with an interdisciplinary team of physicians, Earth scientists, and environmental advocates on the MCA project and was awarded an AGU Celebrate 100 Grant to develop curriculum that dovetails with the weekly themes of the MCA health and wellness program.
The results are the following Carbon Footprint Climate Action chapters freely available to all:
