The more we read about climate anxiety, the more we come to understand ways to combat it - one way to feel better is to take action. Taking action can be both empowering and can help curb "climate anxiety." But in order to take action, you must first find hope.
That’s a tall order these days, after two years of living through a pandemic and now currently witnessing the war in Ukraine. During these heavy times, we suggest turning to one of our personal heroes - Jane Goodall.
Ms. Goodall, one of the most beloved and inspiring naturalists of our time, has a new book she wrote with Douglas Abrams called, “The Book of Hope: A Survival Guide for Trying Times.” There is an audio book option, which makes the book extra special, as Douglas interviews Jane throughout the book.
Listening to her share what she has learned from her work from all over the world offers hope. She has a unique perspective from her work and experiences. She has unwavering faith in nature’s ability to survive and she is a true legend with knowledge beyond what many of us humans will ever be close to experiencing.
So during these trying times, we encourage you to take time for yourself and look for ways to cultivate hope. Perhaps go for a walk, and marvel at the signs of nature around you as you listen to Ms. Goodall calmly share her perspective about why we must not give up our hope.
There is so much work to do to heal our planet that it can feel overwhelming to determine where to start. That’s why 7th Generation Advisors launched the Personal Climate Action Center, a new initiative designed to encourage people to take individual action against climate change.
At 7th Generation Advisors we
are diligently working with scientists, policymakers, activists and
clean tech companies to create a clean energy economy for all, to reduce
greenhouse gas emissions, and to protect all living things seven
generations into the future. We care about the future of our planet.
Will you join us?
