Beth Hill is Melbourne based writer, teacher and activist. In 2017, she completed her PhD in anthropology at the University of Sydney. Her PhD explores the various cultural and emotional forces that shape local community responses to climate change following disaster events. Her research is particularly concerned with the disavowal of vulnerability which contributes to climate change denial and disconnection from nature. Beth currently works as a facilitator with the group Psychology for a Safer Climate, and as a mentor for young people interested in social change and spirituality.
