Climate Stories Project (CSP) is an interactive forum to share personal stories about the effects of climate change on our lives and communities. CSP focuses on personal oral histories, which bring an immediacy to the sometimes abstract nature of climate change communication. Some of us may recount dramatic events such as floods and wildfires, or we may address our observations of changes in seasonal patterns and our fears for the future of our families and communities. We may discuss how climate change is forcing our communities to adapt to extreme weather and sea level rise. Or we may speak about how we are getting involved in movements to build more resilient futures and to fight the fossil fuel industry through community organizing or nonviolent protest. There is no “right” way to talk about climate change as it is a vast topic that is increasingly touching every corner of our lives.
Climate Stories Project encourages you to submit your own reflections about how climate change is affecting your life, your community, or the natural world around you. Your thoughts, reflections, and stories are important! You do not need to be an expert on the science or the policy of climate change.
