How can stories inspire action on climate change, environmental justice, and broader sustainability issues? Through his work leading the Climate Narrative Project, Jeff Biggers explores climate storytelling as a way to bridge the gap between climate science and activism. At this workshop, Biggers will teach Wesleyan, Middlesex Community College, and Middletown high school students how to creatively develop stories that spur activism.
