Unpacking Climate Emotions

​Eco-anxiety is on the rise, and young people worldwide are feeling a sense of environmental doom. It is important to remember we aren’t alone, and our experiences can be reflected on screen to help us collectively share our emotions and work towards action. Using resources from Paramount Global’s Mental Health Storytelling Guide, Good Energy Story’s Playbook, the Climate Mental Health Network, and NRDC Rewrite the Future, as well as advice from live experts, we will workshop potential storylines and characters with the goal of inspiring informed and reflective climate content.
