Ecoanxiety, Climate Grief, and Solastalgia
Monday, March 4, 2024 — in person & on Zoom!
We hope you can join us on Monday March 4, to hear Mirtha Sosa Pacheco speak about ecoanxiety, climate grief, and solastalgia. This presentation will cover some dimensions of emotional distress, aiming to introduce some of the psychological and emotional impacts of the environmental and climate crisis through an intersectional and justice lens. We will explore coping mechanisms and examples of actions we may take both individually and in community to face, and hopefully even thrive in, uncertain times.

Typically held on the first Monday of the month, 350 Wisconsin monthly meetings are open to the public. Some are hybrid and some exclusively on Zoom.
