A Guide To Coping With And Acting Upon Climate Grief
Climate Grief is not an ailment we have to heal from but a call to change the trajectory of our shared future.

Climate change and climate grief are inseparable, and coping with the emotional fallout of the climate crisis is our first step toward dealing with the crisis itself, and to building resilience. From looking inward at our own grief, and emerging with the motivation needed to make lifestyle changes and inspire others, the reader is invited to create a plan for building personal and planetary resilience going forward.
