The Five Stages of Climate Grief | Anger

Recording: The Five Stages of Climate Grief | Anger

Welcome to SG’s contribution to TUD Climate Action. There will be five events for you to visit, corresponding to the famous five stages of grief: denial, depression, anger, bargaining, and acceptance.

Stage 3. Anger

We are all affected by climate change, but not all equally. When addressing these challenges, we need to consider who bears the cost and who reaps the benefits. Through climate change, adaption and mitigation, global injustices have become manifest as a physical reality. How do we ensure justice across the borders between current and future generations, the Global North and the Global South.  

Anger and activism play an important role in the public debate on climate justice. But what is the best way of channelling our emotions and turn them into positive action?
