Understanding our feelings about climate change: Impacts on our health

How we feel about climate change is really important - so we need to think about it and measure it. There are a lot of words being used to describe how we feel about climate change: worry, anxiety, eco-anxiety, decreased well-being, and so on. This talk will be lead by Susan Elliott, Professor of Geography and Environmental Management. Susan Elliott's research interests are environment and health, the global environment, urban social geography,and philosophy and method in the social sciences.

SDG Week Canada is happening from March 6-10, 2023, led by the Sustainability Hub at UBC, SDSN Canada, and Colleges and Institutes Canada.  Campuses across the country are leading programming and communications to raise awareness about the SDGs, spark conversations about opportunities for collaboration within and across campus borders, and accelerate progress on the SDGs in post-secondary institutions.
