Exploring Climate Wellbeing

Researchers have documented growing accounts of climate distress and anxiety among educators, staff and students. At MITOS – in partnership with groups like MIT ESI, the Office of Student Wellbeing, and MIT Medical – we are exploring how to address the emotional dimensions to learning, teaching, and acting on climate change at MIT. This spring (for Earth Day 2023), MITOS helped to organize a workshop for the MIT community with a guided meditation led by Cambridge Insight Meditation Center and a discussion with faculty and mental health professionals. A list of resources is below.
