Eco-Anxiety presented by Jonathan Leeming
Literally overnight, something so small, yet so large, changed my very aspect of our lives, and instilled fear and anxiety in person on the planet. Businesses closed, people lost their jobs, people died, and the future we all had hoped for, seemed an impossible dream. Anxiety creates negative feelings towards the present and the future, which in turn, create a downward spiral of hopelessness, depression and inaction. However, anxiety can also inspire and intensify our focus on activities that will make the world a better place.
Eco-Anxiety focuses upon the world we live in today, highlighting the sources of anxiety (including Covid-19 and lockdown), but more importantly, how to reframe anxiety as a driving force for solving the challenges of our time, and building a prosperous new future.
