WCECW421 How to help Students with Eco Anxiety



Force of Nature is a youth non-profit mobilising mindsets for climate action. They have delivered programmes to over 1000 young people in 50 countries and are on the pulse of young people's emotions on climate change, participating in research with the Climate Psychology Alliance and Imperial College   London.

Over 70% of young people feel hopeless in the face of the climate crisis, and 3 in every 4 teachers feel ill-equipped to teach on the subject.

In this workshop you’ll learn from youth experts on climate psychology and the rise of eco-anxiety. You’ll leave equipped to mobilize the mindsets of young people at school and at home, to move from climate anxiety to agency so that you can help your students to step up rather than shut down in the face of climate change.

Phoebe Hanson the Operations Director at Force of Nature.
Phoebe is a climate and social justice activist passionate about the difference young people can make in the world. She’s particularly interested in the interdependent relationship between our environment and society and is always committed to taking an intersectional approach when tackling environmental problems.

Alongside her work at Force of Nature, Phoebe serves as a member of Manchester's Climate Change Partnership within the youth board, and as a young curator at the Science and Industry  Museum.
