Instructor: Dr. Barrington Hwang
In this class, DR. BARRINGTON HWANG (he/him) plans to discuss how adults can balance hope and hopelessness as it relates to climate change. First, students, if physically able to do so, should come prepared to move around the room. Then, we will discuss individual, everyday situations that have climate-related implications. We will plan to discuss at least 2-3 situations and through this we will introduce a dialectical model that can be tailored to individual situations that promote actionable steps.This presentation is not meant to discuss specifics about factual science behind climate change. This presentation aims to equip adults on how to mentally approach climate-related discussions without excessive optimism or despair, knowing that both human behavior and climate changes are dynamic.
Class Fee: $35.00
Age 21 and up.
