Feeling despair facing a future with the devastating effects of climate change? There may be a remedy.
Hosted by UVA’s Environmental Institute, Contemplative Sciences Center, and Public Service Pathways from the Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Outreach, Britt Wray, a scientist and expert on the psychological impacts of the climate crisis especially among young people, shares research and personal experiences from her journey from fear to hope and action. Based on her book “Generation Dread: Finding Purpose in an Age of Climate Anxiety,” Wray will offer ways for us to thrive, feel less alone and restore ourselves for the long haul.
Copies of Wray’s book will be on sale at the event.
Registration not required.
You are invited to stay for a resources fair immediately following the talk. At the fair, UVA student organizations and outside organizations will offer concrete ways to navigate climate anxiety. You may attend one or both events.
