Listen Up to My Climate Story: Document and Share Yours

Join the Penn Program in Environmental Humanities' team in a virtual presentation on a public storytelling project that recognizes climate change data as stories about the people and places we care about. 

January 27, 2023

The Penn Program in Environmental Humanities' My Climate Story team, led by Dr. Bethany Wiggin, is presenting virtually at the Learning Planet Festival.

The workshop, "Listen Up to My Climate Story: Document and Share Yours," is sponsored by BRIDGES and will be held this Friday, 1/27 at 2:00-3:30 PM EST. Participants will have the chance to learn about the My Climate Story project, write their own climate story, and share their work.

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.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.
