Let’s Talk about Climate Change and Climate Anxiety!
You are back from your holiday and meet your friends at the restaurant to tell them about your fabulous week of skiing in the Alps. Your friend Sarah has gone to sunny Dubai with her parents. You can’t wait to hear her stories.
You arrive at the restaurant and Sarah is already there. She asks you how your holiday went.
You are actually very disappointed because even in the Alps, in the middle of December, there was no snow and if you managed to get down some slopes it was actually thanks to artificial snow. Sarah tells you that even in Dubai, where it is on average 26 degrees in December, you can ski…You think to yourself that the world is not right and that this is making you terribly anxious. Sarah shares your concern and fears.
Your other friends join you at the restaurant and soon the conversation turns to climate change and its consequences. John talks about climate change anxiety. This is the first time you have heard the term. It resonates with you. With your friends, you decide to create a podcast on this topic to spread the word in your communities. Sarah is very enthusiastic about this idea. You decide to meet the next day in your usual café where the wifi is good to put your idea into practice
