Happily, Ever After? | The Nature Book Club

The sheer scale and urgency of the climate crisis can seem overwhelming. In the midst of our long and gruelling fight against climate change, many of us feel strong eco-emotions such as grief, paralysis and anger, and these emotions can affect our mental health and ability to take part in climate action.

Join us for a discussion on the relationship between emotions and environmentalism, and be prepared to share your own experiences with eco-emotions too!
