“In this free webinar, Dr. Ray will discuss strategies for coping with climate (and coronavirus) anxiety that she has pulled 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. 

Following the webinar, there will be a brief introduction to the Cleaner Contra Costa Challenge by Sustainable ContraCosta – an initiative encouraging actions people can take to create a cleaner & healthier community.

THIS EVENT IS CO-SPONSORED BY THE MDUUC CLIMATE ACTION COMMITTEE AND THE MT. DIABLO PEACE & JUSTICE CENTER”
