Creating something meaningful out of our climate feelings
We were recently introduced to RISE Vancouver and Apathy is Boring, and their newly launched eco-anxiety digital zine, Solastalgia. This beautiful resource features artwork of BC youth aged 18-30. As the cohort describes, the zine showcases feelings of eco-anxiety, eco-grief and other eco-emotions in response to the climate and planetary health crisis.
Take a look through the whole zine and find artwork, poems, paintings, illustrations, songs and written pieces.
There is also a list of resources at the end (you’ll see Eco-Anxious Stories among some other great tools and organizations).
Here’s another word from the creators:
“By making this zine we hope to start conversations that help us each hold space for our eco-emotions. We wanted to normalize and validate these feelings. We hope youth can feel more connected by bearing witness to each of the artist’s grief, anxiety and loss on each page.”
