In March 2020, PCAI participated as a British Council delegate in the first Climate Story Lab held in London and it is happy to share two new digital resources that came out of this extremely thought-provoking, four-day event on climate narratives.
The Climate Story Lab was born of the conviction that story-based climate action is more critical than ever before. The lab events are designed to catalyze the most compelling media projects being made right now toward big impact. Through www.climatestorylab.org feel free to download:
- The Report Out from Climate Story Lab UK, which summarises key insights and take-aways from the three day meeting and aims to inspire media makers, climate activists and their allies around the globe to support story-based climate action.
- The Climate Story Lab digital Toolbox; an aid for organisers who want to host their own gatherings – whether in person or virtual which can be iterated and adapted to suit your context & community.
