From plastic in oceans to floods on land, the climate and ecological emergency can make us all feel uneasy...
What is eco anxiety?
Following the bushfires in Australia recent flooding at home and abroad, it's no wonder many of us are feeling more than a little on edge about the environment.
In episode 5 of our podcast "How to Save the Planet", we talk to a journalist and a psychotherapist about the meaning of eco anxiety and why feelings of despair may actually be a good thing. For you, and for the planet.
Victory on fracking
After 8 years of campaigning by local groups and NGOs, the government has announced a moratorium on fracking.
This is a huge victory for the climate, and shows what can be achieved when communities join together for a common goal.
Of course Friends of the Earth always has, and always will, call for a full fracking ban and for the government to stop supporting fracking overseas, but now is a great moment to celebrate community action and what we have achieved.
