• THE BURNOUT PROJECT

  • ABOUT US

    We are a community of young leaders addressing the burnout epidemic.

     

    We live in a fast-paced, digital-first, hyper-connected world.

    A world where we feel called to take action on issues we care about, where it’s also harder than ever to create space for ourselves.

    What has this led to? The burnout epidemic.

     

    Burnout refers to prolonged periods of physical, mental, and emotional degradation, caused by overwork or stress.

    Burnout is an experience that many go through, yet is rarely discussed.

    This is our chance to pause and reflect on why we keep working through cycles of burnout, and begin an honest dialogue.

     

    READ OUR STORY

    WORKSHOPS

    We facilitate workshops to understand the root causes of burnout through open and exploratory dialogue.

     

    In collaboration with experienced practitioners, we help link personal experiences to systemic causes, and learn tangible strategies forward.

    COMMUNITY

    We create spaces in which people can share their experiences without judgement.

     

    Members of our private Burnout Project Community listen and support one another in their journeys towards regeneration and personal sustainability.

    RESOURCES

    We curate resources to support community members in their journeys beyond the workshop.

     

    Our facilitators and community members share their burnout experiences, self-care strategies, and relevant articles with one another.

  • TEAM

    We created this because we were burnt out too.
