About this resource

Hold This Space is a self-guided website which helps you reflect on your emotional response to climate change, imagine a better future, and understand the actions you can take to address the climate crisis.

When we think about the climate crisis, many people experience strong emotions, including worry, fear, anger, grief, despair, guilt, and shame. Studies have found that young people in particular are more likely to experience what researchers and psychologists now call ‘eco-anxiety’.

This platform aims to counteract negative climate narratives in the media and help you navigate your feelings around the climate crisis. Feel, Imagine or Connect and start your eco-anxiety recovery journey, turning your worries into action.

Why we recommend this resource

The project is led by Common Vision, in partnership with Force of Nature and Climate Cares and is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) the UK’s largest funder of independent environmental science, training and innovation. The activities on this website have been co-designed with young people, climate scientists, and psychologists.
