Feeling overwhelmed with news on climate and wondering how you can have an impact? Join Sustainable Contra Costa and Mt. Diablo Unitarian Universalist Church to learn about climate anxiety and how we can combat climate change through our everyday actions! This is a FREE virtual webinar and dialogue with Dr. Sarah Ray of Humboldt State University. Dr. Ray will discuss strategies for coping with climate (and coronavirus) anxiety that she has put together from social movement theory, mindfulness, and the scholarly field of the environmental humanities in her new book, A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety: How to Keep Your Cool on a Warming Planet.
There will be opportunity for Q&A, as well as breakout sessions for smaller groups to reflect on climate anxiety, and the resonance with our current moment of police brutality and COVID. The event will include a brief introduction to the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge.
