#StayAtHome activity: Record a message for an isolated senior!

Being quarantined can be hugely isolating, which has demonstrable negative health impacts. Seniors are especially at risk for this, as well as being in a high-risk group for the COVID-19 virus itself.

As a means of keeping older Canadians engaged and connected during the COVID-19 crisis, a team of Canadian high schoolers created a hotline that plays pre-recorded messages of positivity. The Joy4All project offers regularly updated selection of jokes, stories, guided meditations, and educational messages for quarantined seniors across North America.

We exist in a world with overlapping crises that we wake up and face everyday. And so the next generation of climate action must tell a different story, and reflect a different reality. A reality where climate investments meaningfully improve the lives of residents, where every community in the country feels connected to the work, where we acknowledge the stakes and get down to the hard work of building a world that breaks down the individualistic silos and shows how much better life could be.
