May 23 Webinar – Are You Worried About the Climate Crisis?

Are You Worried About the Climate Crisis?

Tuesday, May 23, 2023 | Virtual | 5:45-6:15 PM ET

Are you, your children, and your friends worried about climate change and its impact on our daily lives? Are you concerned that you can’t do “enough” to make a difference?

May is National Mental Health Awareness Month, and we have invited children, parents, and grandparents to ask a panel of climate and health experts their questions about climate change and mental health on May 23. This event is part of our national series of conversations about Clean Air, Climate, Health Equity—and Inequity.
