Add to Calendar September 22 3:30 pm September 22 5:00 pm America/New_York Innovative Usage of Storytelling for Media Communications on Climate Awareness and Climate Action

One of the most important ingredients for mobilizing engagement and action from individuals for personal and collective change, is concern. How we communicate about the climate crisis and raise awareness on the actions and solutions that are available, accessible and ready to deploy, determines whether we are able to empower and inspire our networks to take action.

It’s the difference between someone becoming overwhelmed by the enormity and complexity of the problem that is presented, or, becoming elevated and engaged, ready to take action to create change. Are we simply stating the problem at hand, or can we become better storytellers as an international community?

This panel will bring together youth activists, climate change communications experts, and representatives from the United Nations family to reflect on how we can generate concern about climate in ways that are not debilitating, and instead catalyze the change we need in society to cultivate climate ambition from our governments.
