To coincide with World Mental Health Day, a piece about eco-anxiety. Hopefully does a bit more than just wibbling quietly and saying “cheer up, might never happen”. Thing is it might happen, and it’s OK to be a bit terrified about that.
Perhaps it’s not, at root, the vastness of eco-collapse that we really dread, but something altogether more human and close to home. Perhaps it’s mostly about love: the love we have for home, and for each other, and nature, and life itself. And its loss.
