A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety: Sarah Jaquette Ray & Living on Earth
Join the nationally-syndicated radio show & podcast Living on Earth and author Sarah Jaquette Ray for the latest Good Reads on Earth virtual event.

We speak to Sarah about her new book, A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety: How to Keep Your Cool on a Warming Planet.


A youth movement is reenergizing global environmental activism. The “climate generation”—late millennials and iGen, or Generation Z—is demanding that policy makers and government leaders take immediate action to address the dire outcomes predicted by climate science. Those inheriting our planet’s environmental problems expect to encounter challenges, but they may not have the skills to grapple with the feelings of powerlessness and despair that may arise when they confront this seemingly intractable situation.

Drawing on a decade of experience leading and teaching in college environmental studies programs, Sarah Jaquette Ray has created an “existential tool kit” for the climate generation. Combining insights from psychology, sociology, social movements, mindfulness, and the environmental humanities, Ray explains why and how we need to let go of eco-guilt, resist burnout, and cultivate resilience while advocating for climate justice. A Field Guide to Climate Anxiety is the essential guidebook for the climate generation—and perhaps the rest of us—as we confront the greatest environmental threat of our time.


This virtual event is part of Good Reads on Earth, a series of events where public radio program & podcast Living on Earth holds live radio interviews with authors of the latest environmental books. To learn more about Living on Earth, please visit loe.org.

This event is sponsored by Living on Earth, the UMass Boston School for the Environment, & the UMass Boston McCormack Graduate School.

This is a free event open to the public.
