CAMP believes there is a need for more digital storytelling initiatives that emphasize the human side of climate change and the impact of fossil fuels on communities and ecosystems around the world. These are some of the inspiring, ongoing projects that bring the human side of climate change to life.
Conversations with the Earth
Conversations with the Earth is a powerful project that represents indigenous voices on climate change through digital stories and worldwide multi-media exhibitions. The project developed as a way of listening closely to traditional custodians of the world’s biocultural diversity and sharing their unique stories via world class multi-media exhibitions, video screening festivals and educational mobile exhibits, in order to raise global awareness and inform global and local responses to multiple environmental challenges.
The Shoreline Project
The Shore Line is a storybook for a sustainable future. Half of the world’s population lives by the coast, an increasingly precarious location. Rising seas and violent storms impact all of us, but not in the same way. From remote islands to dense urban cities, meet 43 people from 9 countries, on the frontlines, taking action, discovering solutions.
Our Climate Stories
Our Climate Stories features stories about climate change and the people dedicating their lives to fighting it in Africa and the Arab World. A series by 350.org on Medium.com. Other regional 350.org chapters also have their own storytelling projects. For example, Frontline Truths is a series of stories by Pacific Climate Warriors telling the realities of climate change in their region.
A powerful example of digital storytelling, Climate Journey was a traveling storytelling project built around a journey to Paris for COP21. Morgan Curtis and Garrett Blad spent 5 months on bicycles and ferries traveling through New England, Atlantic Canada, Iceland, Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, Ireland & the UK, writing, photographing, and collaging, to tell stories of individuals and communities mobilizing for a just transition to a climate-stable future. The powerful stories they told are still available on their website.
