Parents, grandparents, and those caring for children are intimately familiar with the physical and mental strain of eco-anxiety. Acknowledging the climate emergency we're facing, and the future our kids will face, is hard enough without dealing with indifference, belittlement, or outward denial from friends, family, and colleagues.
Here's some insight and inspiration from Dr. Courtney Howard, from her session with For Our Kids and Moms4Healthy Recovery on Feb. 11. We encourage you to find a quiet place to settle in and watch this affirming 30-minute reflection on where your sustainable energy comes from.
You can find many more resources on Dr. Courtney Howard's website. The two questions at the end of her presentation come from the Eco-anxious website.
