Engaging Youth Through Climate Storytelling
Date: October 4, 4:00–6:00 PM CT
What are climate stories? How can they be useful tools for teaching about climate change? What else can we learn through personal climate storytelling? Explore these questions and more in a two hour interactive workshop, "Engaging Youth Through Climate Storytelling.” The workshop will begin with an introduction to climate storytelling: what it is and why it matters, before grounding it within the classroom experience. Participants will then transition into a reflective writing exercise meant to get them started thinking about their climate story. The workshop will end with an invitation for participants to share their own experiences talking about climate change, and walk away with some practical resources and next steps for bringing climate storytelling to their students.
