Youth4Nature: Mobilising Youth to Lead for Nature and Climate, Storytelling

The climate crisis can lead to dangerous generalized anxiety and inaction. This workshop will counteract catastrophic narratives of climate change through a tool for social change: storytelling. Storytelling describes the social and cultural practices of telling stories and narratives, and during this workshop focused on youth, you will learn how to channel your energy into storytelling solutions and narratives. We will share storytelling tips as well as we will have some story crafting exercises together.
