UnDisciplined: here's what the climate crisis is doing to our mental health
Last year a group of researchers from around the world came together to try to make sense of how young people are feeling about the climate crisis. They surveyed 10,000 people in ten countries – and what they found was troubling. Children and young adults are distraught, afraid, sad, angry and ashamed about what is happening to our global climate. The study's leaders say that's a sign of nothing short of immense trauma.
