Coping with climate change anxiety in children

A recent survey that asked 10 000 young people how climate change effected their mental health reveals that ‘27% were extremely worried , 32% were very worried and 25% were moderately worried’. Leaving only 5% who said they were not worried about this issue. Feelings that were arising for young people were sadness, fear, anxiety and anger.
