Eco Anxiety

Is the future of the planet making you depressed? Verity Sharp meets the eco-anxious.
Is the future of the planet making you depressed?  Do you feel paralysed, unable to imagine the happiness of future generations?  As global governments fail to respond to the existential crisis of climate change it’s understandable that some people seem unable to conjure up a sense of hope, understandable that dozens of young British women have joined the Birthstrike movement, refusing to bring more children into the world.  Verity Sharp meets the eco-anxious and asks if they are ill or simply more perceptive than the rest of us.
