Your climate story is the intersection between your life and climate change – your observations of the impacts of the changing climate, your emotional responses, and your convictions to forge a positive way forward.In this 90-minute workshop, you’ll craft your own climate story and share it with other participants. You’ll engage deeply with climate change as a vital personal and community issue and discover the power of storytelling to confront the climate crisis. You'll have an opportunity to connect with other students and staff members at institutions around the world. Please have paper and writing utensils handy.
Climate Stories Project (CSP) is an educational and artistic forum for sharing stories about personal and community responses to climate change. CSP focuses on personal oral histories, which bring an immediacy to the sometimes abstract nature of climate change communication. Some of us may recount dramatic events such as floods and wildfires, or we may address our observations of changes in seasonal patterns and our fears for the future of our families and communities. We may discuss how climate change is forcing our communities to adapt to extreme weather and sea level rise. Or we may speak about how we are getting involved in movements to build more resilient futures and to fight the fossil fuel industry through community organizing or nonviolent protest. There is no "right" way to talk about climate change as it is a vast topic that is increasingly touching every corner of our lives.
This workshop is sponsored by the Experimental Humanities Collaborative Research Network, which includes member universities from around the globe.
