Recently I learned the concept of emotional and intellectual understanding. Sometimes we understand something at an intellectual level, but do not particularly feel for it at an emotional level. What are some ways that you were able to connect with sustainability and develop emotional understanding?

[edited] Everyone has a different understanding of eco-anxiety. Some people define it as "persistent worries about the future of Earth and the life it shelters". I have a lot of eco-anxiety and don't know how to deal with it except for channeling all my energy into deepening my knowledge of sustainability and sharing it with others. What is your definition and how do you cope in a healthy way?

Plastic pollution is a result of severe policy neglect at the national and local level for decades, as well as an increasing culture of single use plastics. There are many individuals such as Afroz Shah organizing beach clean ups year after year to maintain beaches in Mumbai. In such situations who is responsible for taking care of the mess? The people who create the mess or the people who have been chosen to fix these problems, but haven't?

The inclusion of stakeholders in managing sustainability issues is known as multi-actor governance. This is supposed to be a mechanism to include marginalized communities and actors in the process of governance. However, in most cases there is also the involvement of stakeholders with more power and influence in the process, such as large companies. In this way, the inclusion of, say, tribal communities and locals becomes meaningless as they are involved only to fulfil a formality. Nevertheless, scholars argue that inclusion of stakeholders actually results in better outcomes at times and even greater acceptance of the output, regardless of whose favour it is in. I am curious to know about multi-actor governance in India, since most levels of govt and parties end up excluding many actors from this process due to the governance culture as well as corruption. Are there any examples of multi-actor governance that are productive for all actors involved? Does stakeholder involvement even work in non-Western contexts? PS: the country doesn't HAVE to be India, it can be elsewhere too just not in the Western or developed countries
