It’s easy to feel disheartened about climate change. Every day it feels like we’re bombarded with some more bad news about the climate crisis — with little being done by politicians to address it head-on.
Even COP26 — the UN’s 26th climate summit held recently in Scotland — left many feeling let down by our governments’ collective response to global warming. No wonder, then, that a recent global study of 10,000 young people found almost half (45%) admitted the climate emergency was causing them so much anxiety and distress that it is starting to affect their ability to function.
So what can we do to stop the planet (and the next generation) from burning out? Well, although it may not feel like it, there are some reasons to feel optimistic.
First, COP26 was not a total letdown. Secondly, there are already a number of tech innovations already tackling climate change.
