About the Episode

In the penultimate episode of season 2, We Need to Talk about Eco-Anxiety, Clover will be learning about nature and extinction and how it aggravates eco-anxiety worldwide.

First, Clover meets environmental filmmaker and Wildlife photographer of the year, Aishwarya Sidhar, to better understand capitalist systems that are driving extinction. We then hear how young people's eco-anxiety has been worsened by ecological extinction; our resident psychotherapist, Caroline Hickman, on how our abuse of nature is a direct result of our disconnection from it; and finally, Executive Director of Greenpeace, Jennifer Morgan, on what we can do to save the planet.


Top Quotes

"Our greed and overconsumption of resources is driving the destruction of nature. We have these large corporations that are only after profit. And they are willing to trade our economy for our ecology." - Aishwarya Sidhar

"We framed defeating nature as progress. We have had such a messed up relationship with nature and it's been going on for years. The only way to resolve the climate crises is to value nature again." - Caroline Hickman
