November 5, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

UBC Reads Sustainability is back with A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety!

Co-presented by UBC Sustainability Initiative, the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions, and Thrive, join us for a remote discussion with author Sarah Jaquette Ray who has drawn from ten years’ experience leading and teaching in college environmental studies programs to create an “existential toolkit” for the climate generation.

Combining insights from psychology, sociology, social movements, mindfulness, and the environmental humanities, Ray explains why and how we need to let go of eco-guilt, resist burnout, and cultivate resilience while advocating for climate justice.
