Find out how the fight to save our planet could also improve our individual and collective wellbeing in this session exploring our emotional response to the climate crisis.

The fight to save our planet and better look after our environment could deliver co-benefits to both our natural world and our individual and collective societal wellbeing. Mental health research fellow Dr Emma Lawrance and some of the team behind the Natural History Museum’s Broken Planet exhibition explore how we are responding to the climate crisis emotionally.  

Hear the experiences of climate change from young people in the UK and around the world, and learn how our psychological reaction to this crisis links with the agency we feel to take action.
