Synopsis

It's not just you.

The climate crisis is making us all unwell.

But not just you.

The climate crisis is affecting certain communities disproportionately.

And it's not just the climate crisis...



During recent years, the term 'eco-anxiety' has been popularised to talk about the negative impact of the climate emergency on our wellbeing. In It's Not Just You, climate activist Tori Tsui reframes eco-anxiety as a mental health crisis that encompasses many injustices and is deeply entrenched in racism, sexism, ableism and, above all, capitalism.



This is the first intersectional book to explore the relationship between mental health and the climate crisis. Tori Tsui draws on the wisdom of diverse environmental advocates who have been on the frontlines long before eco-anxiety became an issue in the global north. Chapters include interviews with marginalised activists including BIPOC, activists from the global south, women, queer activists and disabled activists.



As someone who suffers from mental health conditions, Tori argues that fights for intersectional climate justice must incorporate our wellbeing and how this is a direct reflection of our environment. Tackling eco-anxiety requires looking both inwards and outwards, addressing our own mental health while also advocating for the world's most marginalised and the planet. The solution is embracing individuality over individualism, while also striving to build community and collective action.

She was named one of Stella McCartney's agents of change her Fall/Winter 2019 campaign written by author and activist Jonathan Safran Foer and narrated by primatologist Dame Jane Goodall. Stella subsequently sponsored Tori to sail across the Atlantic Ocean to the UN climate conference, COP25. After working on this project, she lived in Colombia working with Latin American and Caribbean youth on a project called Sail For Climate Action, which aimed to amplify the voices of environmentalists from the global south. She has spoken at the International Hay Festival and Stella McCartney's roundtable at Paris Fashion week, COP26, Glasgow 2021. In Nov 2021, Tori was invited by actor Emma Watson to speak at The New York Times Climate Hub, alongside youth climate leaders such as Greta Thunberg and Malala Yousafzai (Malala Fund) to discuss the need for collective, coalition-led leadership to accomplish intersectional thinking that the climate challenge requires. She runs a collective called Bad Activist which aims to shed the guise of perfection in climate activism. It's Not Just You is Tori's first book.
