Our Shared Planet: Climate, Story, Relationship, and Responsibility
News Release: Climate scientist, author to give 2022 Kenneth Spencer Lecture
Within this theme, we explore:
• How climate communication reflects values and goals for the future;
• Who informs decision-making about our institutional responses to the realities of climate change;
• The role of relationship-building in responding to the urgency of this moment; and
• What the interdependence of humans as a species means for its role in the current moment
Leveraging Emotion: Climate Change and the Power in Feeling
The known and projected impacts of climate change forecast massive changes to life on a planetary scale. As visions for the future become less recognizable and actions taken by those in power are varied, humans are left with a range of emotions. This discussion among leaders in the field of climate change and mental health will help bring into focus our understanding of what it means to feel in response to climate change. Understanding our emotions can help us adapt and act, as individuals and also in community, to promote justice and resilience.
