Is anxiety and fear around climate change something to overcome, embrace or channel in the English language classroom? How can we better face our climate emotions and help others to do the same? Can we encourage more positive climate emotions like hope, connectedness and empowerment in our lives and schools? 

In this session, we will look at some big climate emotions, examine their causes, and discuss how we can help our English Language Learners use these emotions to make a positive impact.
