Navigating Climate Anxiety

Issue 341 • November/December 2023

issue cover 341

In this special themed issue, we tackle eco-anxiety and explore ways in which we can navigate these difficult feelings. We examine too the new idea of ‘solastalgia’ which takes the concept of eco-anxiety a step further to examine the lived experience of dealing with the impacts of climate change.

In the Ecologist pages Rashi Goel reports on a restoration project that is bringing an arid desert wasteland, near the Indian city of Jodhpur, back to a place that is now teeming with life. Whilst in Connected Life, Lynn Houghton joins other Citizen Scientists to work with researchers on the trail of the elusive Cloud Wolf in remote Manitoba, central Canada. In The Slow Read, author and activist Koohan Paik-Mander puts forward a case against megatechnology and warns that the time to stop AI in its tracks is now. She goes on to call for a new paradigm of holism that recognises that everything exists in relation to everything else. Within Wisdom and Wellbeing natural chef Adria Wu shares her seasonal, superfood mince pie recipe and our Art & Culture pages feature an interview with Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller about creating communities through the magic of art.
