Climate Optimism in Environmental and Sustainability Studies Students at the University of Utah

Semester: Spring 2024


Presentation description

This work looks at the emotions environmental and sustianability studies (ENVST) feel surrounding climate change, specifically climate optimism. It explores if climate optimism and climate anxiety are related, how climate optimism changes as students progress in their degree, how high impact experiences impact climate optimism, and if demographics impact climate optimism. The data comes from a survey distributed to ENVST students in a variety of classes.
