Tweedaags industry event voor storytellers en koplopers in de klimaatbeweging
While the concern around climate change is normal, eco-anxiety describes a state of being overwhelmed by the sheer scale, complexity and seriousness of the problem. Often accompanied by guilt for contributing to the problem. The media and entertainment industry is not helping. A doom and gloom narrative, which emphasizes problems, costs, and adverse impact, is the most dominant narrative on climate change.
Climate Story Lab aims to inspire and connect an international community of storytellers to engage with the topic of climate change in a more diverse and profound way. Not just the doom and gloom, but also the hopeful and transformative power of this dire moment in history.
The two day event brings together inspiring frontrunners of the current climate movement (activists, advocates, foundations, psychologists, scientists, journalists) to the (online) stage to share their journeys, as well as international professionals from the storytelling community to share their views on and experience with impactful stories around climate change, after which we open up the floor for discussion: What stories do we need to tell? What stories, whose stories are not being heard? What stories can amplify and accelerate change?
The next day we host a writers room for individual projects to work on their own story ideas, building on inspiration from the previous day.
