The power of creativity and storytelling could change the course of the climate crisis. We have the facts, we have policy solutions, and we have research and science experts. What we don’t have is popular stories, for a livable future, stories that motivate people to find and act on solutions. And that’s why we need artists, writers, creatives, and filmmakers. We need those new stories. As a result, a live panel, ‘How can we use storytelling to accelerate climate action in 2023?’ was hosted during The Learning Planet Festival, to bring amazing creatives and storytellers together to discuss what impact and action can storytelling create for climate change.
The LearningPlanet Festival is organised every year around International Education Day in partnership with UNESCO and hundreds of pioneering organisations in the fields of education, culture, science, and social and environmental impact, as well as with thousands of students from all over the world.
The speakers included Andrés Colmenares, Co-Founder Of Internet Age Media (Barcelona), Neha Sinha, Conservation Biologist, Author of ‘Wild and Wilful’ (India), Tobias Grut, Brand Manager – The Nordics, Nordic Council of Ministers, Breathe With Me (Denmark), Isaias Hernandez, Environmental Educator & Creator of QueerBrownVegan (Los Angeles) and was moderated by Tamseel Hussain, Pluc.tv (India).
