Young people are terrified, depressed and anxious about the climate crisis. And the pressure society puts on them to drive innovation and lead change isn’t helping. In fact, it’s wearing them down – with 70% of 18-24-year-olds saying they feel eco-anxiety. In this episode of TEDxLondon’s Climate Curious we’re joined by visionary 21-year-old activist Clover Hogan, who urges us to give youth activists the space to have nuance and express their true feelings. Tune into this illuminating episode with Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst where they explore the importance of an intergenerational approach to the climate crisis, explain why it’s so important to face these negative or scary feelings, and suggest how to turn your anxiety into agency. This week’s Climate Confessions? A nearly vegan burger, long hot baths, and a shocking revelation about coconut water you won’t be able to unhear.
