About Us

Eco-Anxious Stories was created in response to our own experiences with eco-anxiety and feelings of isolation as we navigate this crisis. We envision a diverse community of people sharing stories of their own experiences and finding shelter from the storm. We believe that if we can shrug off silence together, we can support one another in taking meaningful action.

Kevin Gatley

Kevin is the Operations Director and co-founder of Eco-Anxious Stories and Business Strategist and Leadership Coach at EAS Solutions. His own eco-anxiety was heightened when he became a Dad and felt a new pressure to have a resounding impact on the world around him. When not passionately working with his clients and partners, he can be found having adventures with the loves of his life: his kids and amazing wife.
