Conversations about climate change and climate anxiety or grief bring us face-to-face with our own vulnerability, fragility and resilience, as well as those of the planet.
During this conversation about Climate Grief, Ed Gillespie, Anouchka Grose and Judith Anderson discuss the rising tide of eco-anxiety and grief, as well as children’s and adults’ growing concerns about the climate crisis.
They explore how feelings of grief, guilt, anxiety, shame, anger and depression can all be understood in the light of the current emergency. Rather than treating these feelings as problems, they can be reframed to make more sense in the light of the crisis and may, paradoxically, actually save us.
Ed Gillespie is a writer, communications specialist, serial entrepreneur and futurist. He is the author of Only Planet, a book about his circumnavigation of the globe without getting on a plane, which the Independent described as allowing ‘the world’s flaws and beauty to seep into your soul’.
Anouchka Grose is a psychoanalyst and author of A Guide to Eco-Anxiety.
Judith Anderson is a psychotherapist and chair of the Climate Psychology Alliance.
