My Climate Story

We are asking for personal stories about local experiences of global climate change. We want to hear your stories.

How to tell a My Climate Story

Telling your story about how you experience climate change is simple--anyone can do it; we are all experiencing it. Think about what your climate story might be: maybe you feel uncertain, maybe sad, maybe frustrated. There's really no wrong way to document your climate story, just make sure you connect it to a specific place you care about. You can write a short glimpse of your experience, including how you feel, or offer a longer narrative. Perhaps you will draw a picture or take a photo. You might video or audio record the sights and sounds you associate with the change you’re experiencing. You might record someone -even yourself- telling the story. My Climate Stories can be created and collected in formal or informal educational settings, shared through social media using the hashtag #MyClimateStory, or submitted individually to the public databank at http://stories.datarefuge.org/climatestory. Adapt the process for the needs in your community.

CONTRIBUTE YOUR CLIMATE STORY


We know the stories you collect from your community will be valuable to you. We urge you to allow us to add them to our story bank and to share them with the wider public participants in the project.
