Worrying about the future is a natural reaction to news surrounding the climate crisis. This is a crisis, after all. Yet the negativity can be debilitating, unmotivating, and lead to mental health issues.
The consensus for how to help alleviate these feelings is threefold:
- Take action,
- Get involved in a community of supporters and like-minded people,
- Educate yourself.
Climativity is a media platform that helps accomplish this by alleviating feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, and dread through climate positivity, progress, and action.
Launched in April 2022 by Jacob Simon and Anushka Makhija, Jacob continues to run Climativity today.
Good Climate News
Global news about the state of our environment and the natural world is usually not good. The doom and gloom are overwhelming. Yet there are positive steps being taken every day. We choose to highlight the abundance of motivating and exciting environmental happenings around the world. This includes government policy, sports, plants and animals, inventions, and many forms of climate optimism.
Simple and Impactful Action
It's not always obvious to know where to start and what to do to fight against climate change. That's why we make it easy for you. On Climativity you'll find actions you can take, how to take them, and the impacts they have.
