Jennifer Atkinson

Jennifer Atkinson, will be the speaker for the next University of Washington Bothell Pub Night Talk at McMenamins, “Depressed about Climate Change? Moving from Angst to Action in an Age of Ecological Disruption.”

While grief, anxiety and hopelessness are increasingly common responses to environmental crises, such feelings rarely motivate people to action. As a senior lecturer for the School of Interdisciplinary Arts & Sciences at UW Bothell, Atkinson explores how to build resilience to stay engaged in solutions.

Pub Night Talks is a free monthly lecture series cosponsored by UW Bothell and McMenamins, featuring university and community experts. Topics have ranged from butterflies to black holes.

Atkinson will speak from 7-8:30 p.m. on May 28 at Haynes’ Hall in the McMenamins Anderson School, 18607 Bothell Way NE in Bothell. Doors open at 6 p.m.

The event is free and open to the public. All ages are welcome but seating is first come, first served. The talk will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
