How does the climate crisis make you feel?

Mitzi Jonelle Tan is a full-time climate justice activist based in Metro Manila, Philippines. She is the convenor and international spokesperson of Youth Advocates for Climate Action Philippines, the Fridays For Future of the Philippines. A strong voice on anti-imperialism, anti-colonization, and the intersectionality of the climate crisis, she is committed to changing the system and building a world that prioritizes people and planet, not profit, through collective action.

In the 7th episode of season 3, Confessions of a Climate Activist, Clover sits down with Mitzi Jonelle Tan to explore the difference between eco-anxiety and eco-trauma, and how to understand our emotions. They discuss how to keep showing up and the power of community in cultivating mindset shifts from anxiety to agency. Finally, Mitzi spills her climate confession!

“Knowing that you’re not alone in it really helps. Knowing that the collective action aspect of activism is so crucial. Even if you don’t see anyone else who is anxious, there are people who are fighting alongside you fighting.” - Mitzi Jonelle Tan
