Turning Eco-Anxiety into Eco-Action | Our Broken PlanetAt times it can be overwhelming to contemplate the challenges we face in the Anthropocene, from the climate crisis to biodiversity loss. The hurdles in the way of a sustainable future can sometimes feel insurmountable - but each of us is capable of making a difference. Join us in conversation with eco-anxiety activist and researcher Clover Hogan and climate psychology researcher Caroline Hickmann. We will explore why we feel the way we do, and how to turn ecological grief into determination to make positive change for the future of our planet. About the speakers Clover Hogan is a 21-year-old climate activist, researcher on eco-anxiety, and Founder and Executive Director of Force of Nature. Force of Nature is a youth non-profit mobilising mindsets for climate action. Through virtual programmes, they empower young people in over 50 countries to cultivate mindsets of agency, purpose and resilience. They also work with decision-makers across business, policy and civil society to drive intergenerational solutions. Caroline Hickmann is a Climate Psychology Researcher and Lecturer at the University of Bath. Her research centres on children and young people's relationships with nature and feelings about the climate and ecological crisis in the UK, Maldives, South Pacific and other communities already affected by rising sea levels. She also serves on the Executive Committee of the Climate Psychology Alliance (CPA), and is a practicing psychotherapist.

How Airlines Are Racing to Clean Up the Skies With “Green” FuelsSustainable aviation fuel, or SAF, could help the airline industry meet ambitious emissions reduction targets in the coming years. » Subscribe to Seeker! http://bit.ly/subscribeseeker » Watch more Elements! http://bit.ly/ElementsPlaylist » Visit our shop at http://shop.seeker.com Pre-COVID, aviation was one of the fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions, rising by about 2% every year since 2000. If it were a country, global aviation would rank in the top 10 greenhouse gas emitters, ahead of Brazil, Mexico, and the UK. And with its fuel consumption expected to triple over the next 25 years, some governments aren’t waiting to take action. In June of 2020, the UK government established the JetZero Council , part of a post-pandemic green recovery plan that includes the adoption of sustainable technologies to reach the goal of zero-emission flights by 2050. But how will the global airline industry reach these sustainability goals while grappling with the massive financial hit from COVID. Well, one of the easiest ways could be to re-think our fuel source. Sustainable aviation fuel, also known as SAF, is a cleaner substitute for dirty fossil fuels. #greenenergy #sustainableenergy #aviation #space #seeker #science #elements Read More: Can sustainable aviation fuels give us guilt-free flying? https://www.chemistryworld.com/features/can-sustainable-aviation-fuels-give-us-guilt-free-flying/4012416.article "No one knows how quickly or how far [the airline industry] will recover. But whatever happens, for the world to get to a net-zero-carbon economy by 2050 aviation will have to play its part. Sustainable aviation fuels could soon take flight https://energynews.us/2020/08/28/midwest/sustainable-aviation-fuels-could-soon-take-flight/ "At first, the new fuels would mainly be blended with commercial jet fuels, in somewhat the same way that ethanol can now make up a certain percentage of auto gasoline." Oxford researchers hope to convert carbon dioxide into jet fuel https://www.washingtonpost.com/technology/2020/12/31/jet-fuel-climate-change-co2/ "Researchers led by Oxford University have developed a strategy for creating jet fuel out of natural greenhouse gas, joining a growing list of firms and aviation organizations aiming to tackle mounting climate change concerns." ____________________ Elements is more than just a science show.
