A Climate Action for Every Type of Activist
By Cathy Brown
Susan Clayton, a professor of psychology and environmental studies at the College of Wooster, says getting involved with a group can help lift your climate-related anxiety and depression in three ways. Working with like-minded folks can validate your concerns, give you needed social support, and help you move from feeling helpless to empowered.
And it can make a difference. "Groups are more effective than individuals," Clayton says. "You can see real impact."
So join forces with like-minded citizens and push for change.
