Climate change and emotions
What you'll learn
- personal development
- climate change
- emotional intelligence
- engage with new ideas
- be challenged
In this course, you will learn to take yourself seriously in these times of climate change. You will learn what your 'gut reactions' to news or events can mean, how to respond to them and how to use them to your advantage.
I have comprised ideas from environmental sciences and applied psychology to give you a well-rounded idea of how you can meet the challenges of our present time. At the end of this course, you will understand that only you are in charge of your life.
I guide you through our current predicament of multiple planetary crises, look at common emotional responses to climate change, dive deep into your ability to react to the news, and finish with an overview of how to take action in a way that is right for you. Throughout the course, I provide you with workbooks for your own reflections.
Who is this course for?
This course is designed for the general public, for concerned citizens of the world who are worried about the state of the world.
If you are concerned about our current state of the world and you want to learn how you can best respond, this is the course for you. If you suffer from eco-anxiety, climate grief, or are on the path of deep adaptation, then this course will guide you on your journey.
This course will help you to make sense of your experiences and your emotions. It will teach you the core concepts to understand your feelings towards climate change and it will help you to develop tools to work with your feelings.
