Earth Day article addresses coping with environmental grief

A special Earth Day section of The Day newspaper featured an article by Judy Benson, communications coordinator for CT Sea Grant, titled, “Being Blue Won’t Save the Planet, So Why Not Acknowledge the Grief, then Take Action?”

The article includes excerpts from interviews with UConn students, academics and community leaders about dealing with environmental grief, also called eco-anxiety or climate despair.
