Virtual Lunch & Learn: Moving Through Climate Anxiety

  • Location


Join the Rhode Island Environmental Education Association (RIEEA) for its bimonthly virtual lunch & learn. This month’s lunch & learn features Kate Schapira, a writer and teacher with more than eight years of experience listening to people talk about climate change. Since 2014, she’s staffed the Climate Anxiety Counseling Booth, mainly in Providence, where she’s lived for 20 years and is involved with local efforts promoting environmental justice, climate justice, and peer mental health support. She teaches nonfiction writing at Brown University and leads guest workshops on building climate and community emotional intelligence, and turning climate anxiety into connection and action. These workshops form the backbone of a book called “Next Morning on Earth,” forthcoming in 2024 with Hachette Go. The exercises for this lunch & learn are from those workshops, and were chosen to be useful for environmental educators and the people who learn with them.
