Farmers are changing their mindset on climate issues, but preconceptions, misconceptions and political opportunism sometimes leave the Aussie farmer as “the meat in the sandwich” when it comes to the climate debate. For some farmers, climate change predictions are leading to more than just concern – it is actually creating a new wave of stress and uncertainty, some of which may become mental health challenges.
Focusing on the solutions rather than the problem can help you to keep a positive mindset as you work towards a better climate future for yourself, your industry and the planet. Farmers for Climate Action can help make positive contributions to discussions on this topic – and in this episode Charlie Prell shares his experiences with climate action, and how controlling the things you can control is key to aleviating anxiety.
