Ecology: useful resources

Lately, I’ve been learning more and more about the environment, climate change and all in-between.

Mind you: I didn’t ‘forget’ about veganism! It is and will always be an essential part of my life - both personally and professionally. But since the release of IPCC’s first working group assessment in August 2021, I have been feeling appalled (hi, eco-anxiety!) and as if, unlike what I thought, I didn’t know a thing about all the issues around climate change/collapse/the Anthropocene and so on.

For those of you it may interest, I have compiled a list of resources; most I already read/listened to, and others in my “to-do list”, from popularising work to more specialised references.

I hope you will learn tons of stuff; if you can recommend other resources, just let me know 🌍

[P.S. as I find new resources, I will add them here, so feel free to keep an eye on this list!]
