Reasons to be Cheerful with Ed Miliband and Geoff Lloyd / ANXIETY AND AGENCY: How to respond to eco-anxiety in the face of climate change

Listen on

Episode notes

Hello! This week we're discussing the impacts of the climate crisis on our mental health, and how we can support ourselves and each other in response. 


From the trauma of the effects of extreme weather events like floods and droughts, to worrying about climate change in our every day lives, there’s a growing body of evidence which shows more and more of us are struggling.


To help us understand why we feel the way we do, and what we can do to help, we’re joined by Dr Emma Lawrence from Imperial College London, who’s contributed toward research in this area, physiotherapist Steffi Badnarek, and Sacha Wright, from Force of Nature, who’s helping young people manage their wellbeing and create positive change.
