Join Kingston WritersFest as we present Dr. Britt Wray, in conversation with Professor John Smol, for a timely conversation about eco-anxiety and her new book, Generation Dread: Finding Purpose in an Age of Climate Crisis. Britt will explore the psychological impact of climate and environment-related fears, arguing that intense feelings are not only a healthy response to the troubled state of the world, but a first crucial step toward becoming an engaged steward of the planet.
With insights drawn from climate-aware therapists, critical perspectives on race and privilege in this crisis, ideas about the future of mental health innovation, and creative coping strategies, Britt illuminates how we can learn from the past, from our own emotions, and from each other to survive—and even thrive—in a changing world.
This is a virtual event, and the onstage conversation will be followed by an audience Q&A.
(Wednesday) 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
