Listen Up to My Climate Story at Learning Planet Festival
"Listen Up to My Climate Story: Document and Share Yours" is an online workshop at the 2023 Learning Planet Festival brought to you by BRIDGES.
My Climate Story (MCS) is a public storytelling project that recognizes climate change data as stories about the people and places we care about. These personal experiences of climate change provide valuable additions to the quantifiable science as we continue to struggle to comprehend and to take action on the climate crisis. You don’t need a lab coat to collect climate data. In this 90-minute online interactive session at the Learning Planet Festival, and in collaboration with BRIDGES, the MCS core team, students and teachers from Philadelphia (USA), will introduce the project’s mission and goals and guide participants in crafting and sharing their climate story.
The project’s curriculum, designed for ages 12-17, and its storytelling workshops, workbooks, and storytelling prompts, available in fifteen world languages, support participant teachers, students, and others to train their imagination. It’s the most important tool we have to address the climate crisis. Reflecting on the changing world we, unevenly and unfairly, have made, participants are encouraged to document and share their stories via the project’s social media channels in the growing Climate Story Bank, a publicly available repository of local stories documenting personal experiences of climate change, including individuals’ emotional responses.
