Big Ideas: Renee Lertzman – Coping With Climate Depression

The climate crisis has reached critical proportions. So why aren’t we doing anything about it? Have we become apathetic? Not according to American psychologist Renee Lertzman.She believes we should scrap the paralyzing doomsday scenarios and get out and do something. But why is that so hard? Because we’re not sure what we can do about the threats posed by climate change. Our apathy is a coping mechanism. According to Lertzman, the solution lies in the human desire to exert influence.
Renee Lertzman spent years researching the psychodynamic processes related to environmental issues. Be there tonight at 19:30 hours! Tickets & info.
