The Five Stages of Climate Grief | Bargaining

The Climate Grief Series

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 4. Bargaining

We like to fix things, and there is no shortage of big ideas at the TU Delft. Maybe there’s a bargain to be struck, and we can engineer our way out of the climate crisis. But with great power comes great responsibility. We will assess the risks, responsibilities and opportunities of geoengineering and other radical solutions.
