Solastagia: How Your Environmental Knowledge Can Affect Your Mental Health

Is knowing more really knowing better? Do you think that knowing about something helps your understanding or makes a situation better or worse? At the moment the information the media is featuring regarding environmental issues highlighting the crises in our environment. From devastating fires to rising global temperatures, plastic pollution, animal cruelty, poaching, endangered species, fracking and everything in-between… it can feel as if we are heading to a point of no return.

Is all this “negative” information really good for us? The good, the bad and the global knowing: what is your environmental knowledge?
