‘Solastalgia’ is a condition similar to climate anxiety, which is being diagnosed increasingly frequently, and is the result of changes to local habitat which are outwith our control and often a result of climate change.
We took a group of young people out to explore what parts of nature they appreciate most, what they perhaps take for granted, and what they might miss if it was no longer available. Our film appeals to the viewer to consider the effect their actions are having on the ability of future generations to enjoy the outdoors, and aims to prevent more solastalgia.
