Studium talk touches on climate anxiety

Posted

Climate anxiety  and resilience will be the topic at the next Studium Generale presentation at Peninsula College.

WSU Extension 4-H Program Coordinator Melanie Greer will be the guest speaker at the Studium Generale presentation on Thursday, Oct. 27 at the college. Greer will introduce a common language and knowledge about the range of reactions people are reporting, and strategies to take toward personal and community resilience. 

“People are experiencing a wide range of responses to how climate change is affecting our communities and our lives,” Greer said.

The talk is the culminating presentation for Resilience Month, a community-wide effort of activities focused on building knowledge, skills, connection, and resilience.

Greer has a master’s degree in environment and community and has been working with WSU Extension as the 4-H program coordinator for four years. She believes that building a stronger, more resilient community is a key factor in improving the environment and all of our lives.

The event is free and open to the public and will begin at 12:35 p.m. in Peninsula College’s Little Theater in Port Angeles.
