What is Eco-anxiety?

Eco-anxiety refers to a chronic fear or worry about environmental issues and the potential negative impacts of climate change.

It is characterized by a sense of distress and anxiety related to the state of the planet’s environment, including concerns about the future well-being of ecosystems, wildlife, and human populations due to factors like pollution, climate change, and natural disasters. This emotional response can lead to feelings of helplessness, sadness, and fear about the Earth’s future.
