Climate Story Labs

Here is a video that shares the lessons we’ve learned from the Climate Story Labs in the US and in the UK, and features some of the amazing stories that have come through the labs. Each storyteller has taken their own unique approach to reach new voices and inspire action. You’ll hear from:

  • Selina Nwulu, a London-based writer, created Loneliness: A Climate Change Story, a six-part poetry series that considers the emotion loneliness as an entry point to climate change.
  • Katie Basile, the Director and Producer of the short documentary, To Keep As One, which is about the forced relocation Alaska Native village due to permafrost.
  • Tanya Noushka, the London-based Director of The World is (Y)Ours, a short film that examines climate change from the perspectives of Black and Brown people in Britain

“CSL was an incredible opportunity. Honestly, it felt like a gamechanger for us. It was so inspiring to meet the other media creators, and just awe-inspiring to hear the presentations from all those renowned scientists and artists, and receive advice from impact producers, foundations folks.”

Maeve McGoran, storyteller

"In the past, I’ve been to quite a few climate change related conferences and I can honestly say none of them come close to the delicate programming and compassionate hosting of CSL 2020. The conversations gave inclusivity, collaboration and impact a whole new meaning for me, and in a way that goes well beyond climate change and storytelling."
