Terra Informer Eric Bowling spoke with positive psychologist Dr. Holli-Anne Passmore. Positive psychology seeks to support people as they accept their past, feel happiness and excitement about their future, and contentment in the present. Dr. Passmore’s work focuses on the relationship between people, nature, and well-being, and has been published in numerous academic journals and presented at national and international conferences.
Last week, people around the world came out in record numbers to call for climate action. This week of action was kicked off and wrapped up by two major events on Friday September 20th and Friday September 27th. Canada’s strikes and marches were planned for this past Friday, September 27th to conclude this week of action.
Here in Edmonton, Alberta, an estimated 4000 people converged on the legislature building downtown, and an estimated 1000 people rallied in Calgary.
