Many teenagers worry about the consequences of climate change but there are ways that educators can help them manage this climate anxiety. EDC experts offer their knowledge in this Education Week article.

In "Teens Are Struggling With Climate Anxiety. Schools Haven’t Caught Up Yet," Education & Wellbeing expert Shai Fuxman says, “The connection between that and climate change and climate anxiety hasn’t been made, but it’s not a difficult link to make. The skills that we’re already teaching—around self-empowerment, managing emotions, developing goals and setting goals and achieving goals—those are all skills that can easily be applied to the conversations that teachers are having with students around climate change.”
