Climate Hope for the Holidays: Turning Angst into Action
- General Admission – Free
- Support Climate Science on Tap – $10.
The latest report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change paints a grim picture of the future if humanity fails to act. Yet research shows that doom-and-gloom rarely motivates people to action. Instead it results in fear, anxiety, and depression. In this very special holiday addition of Climate Science on Tap, we’ll focus on a hopeful and empowering message. Our expert panel will discuss coping with environmental angst and anxiety, communicating ‘Earth Optimism’, and highlighting actions that will make a difference, from personal choices to the voting booth. Join us for insightful presentations and an inspiring Q&A that may just leave you feeling a bit more optimistic about the future.
