Exploring Climate Change & Emotions: From Distress to Wellbeing

Date: Monday, April 24, 4:30pm-6pm, Networking and refreshments: 6-6:30pm

Location: Hayden Memorial Library - The Nexus (Building 14, Floor 1)

At MIT, we are working toward solving the world’s most urgent problems, including climate change and environmental justice. As we embark on this important work, many of us feel a range of emotions, such as anxiety, grief, and distress. There are also opportunities to feel joy and optimism, as well as to take steps toward finding community and participating in climate action. Join us in conversation (and practice) as we explore the intersection between climate change, wellbeing, and the actions needed to build a more sustainable and just world. Refreshments and networking following the session. Sponsored by: MITOS, ESI, the Office of Student Wellbeing, and the Climate Nucleus. This event is open to the MIT Community.
