Show Notes

Anne Therese, founder of The Climate Optimist, chats to us about the relationship between activism and feeling good. Anne is a speaker, educator and long-term environmental activist. She explains how we are more likely to act and make changes in our lives if we feel hopeful about the future, rather than being paralysed by fear and anger.

You can find out more about Anne and all the incredible work that she does at:  https://www.theclimateoptimist.com/

Her book The Climate Optimist Handbook is out this Autumn.
