Talking In This Climate | Why it's ok to feel eco-anxious, learning to live with climate change, a conversation with Dr Blanche Verlie

Congratulations on reaching double digits - Talking In This Climate!


Feeling anxious about climate change? Reflect and recharge with this unique episode where we explore emotional responses to climate change with Dr. Blanche Verlie, member of the Sydney Environment Institute and author of Learning to live-with climate change: From anxiety to transformation.

In this conversation we flip the teacher/student dynamic and have one of Blanche’s previous students, our co-host Zoe, interview her. Join our discussion on feeling the realities of climate change and embrace ways to support each other and live with climate change.

Together, we reflect on what living with climate change can feel and look like and delve into environmental education and its impacts on students and teachers. We explore the power of laughter and vulnerability in communicating climate change and unpack some powerful concepts such as: more than human, the human nature binary, relational climate justice and bearing worlds with climate.
