Virtual Lunch & Learn: Moving Through Climate Anxiety, September 28, 2022

Join us on Wednesday, September 28, 2022 at 11:30am for a virtual lunch & learn.

Kate Schapira, siting at a table outside with a sign that says "Climate Anxiety Counseling 5 cents"This month we will be joined by Kate Schapira, a writer and teacher with over eight years of experience listening to people talk about climate change. Since 2014, she’s staffed the Climate Anxiety Counseling booth, mainly in Providence, RI, where she’s lived for 20 years and is involved with local efforts toward environmental justice, climate justice, and peer mental health support. She teaches nonfiction writing at Brown University and leads guest workshops on building climate and community emotional intelligence, and turning climate anxiety into connection and action. These workshops form the backbone of a book called Next Morning on Earth, forthcoming in 2024 with Hachette Go. The exercises for our lunch & learn are from those workshops, and were chosen to be useful both for environmental educators and for the people who learn with them.
