A youth movement is reenergizing global environmental activism. The "climate generation"- late millennials and iGen or Generation Z is demanding that policy makers and government leaders take immediate action to address the dire outcomes predicted by climate science. Those inheriting our planet's environmental problems expect to encounter challenges, but they may not have the skills to grapple with the feelings of powerlessness and despair that may arise when they confront this seemingly intractable situation.
Drawing on a decade of experience leading and teaching in college environmental studies programs, Sarah Jaquette Ray has created an "existential tool kit" for the climate generation. Combining insights from psychology, sociology, social movements, mindfulness, and the environmental humanities, Ray explains why and how we need to let go of eco-guilt, resist burnout, and build resilience while advocating for climate justice. A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety is the essential guidebook for the climate generation- and perhaps the rest of us as we confront the greatest environmental threat of our time.
