Jennifer Atkinson: "Addressing climate grief makes you a badass, not a snowflake"

Jennifer Atkinson

IAS faculty member Jennifer Atkinson published an editorial on “Ecological Grief” in High Country News.  "Addressing climate grief makes you a badass, not a snowflake" discusses Atkinson’s experience teaching a pilot seminar on the emotional toll of ecological disruption, media coverage and public responses to the course, and the irony of labeling students "snowflakes" when they are tackling some of the toughest global challenges of our time -- an act that takes extraordinary courage and grit.
