Connecting to Climate Futures, Now 

 

During 2021 the STORYBOX team have been collaborating with storytellers, artists, researchers and students to reflect on the shared experience of responding to the climate emergency. 

 

In Australia, many people want to see more government action on climate change. Many people are aware of the scientific evidence confirming climate change, but feel helpless and unable to respond to what the science is telling us. 

NOTE: Most videos do not have sound when they are played outdoors on STORYBOX.

We stand at a crossroads.

For decades the climate crisis has been something distant and far away. But now the future has come to meet us. 

What is it like to now be facing the prospect of severe climate change impacting our lives, our habitats and our communities?​​

In April 2021 we invited a group of Sydney-siders to share their perspectives on climate futures as part of a STORYBOX Sydney workshop co-facilitated with Dr. Claire Scobie. 

 

We shared a video of the Climate Clock we are featuring on STORYBOX Sydney, and discussed participant responses to the climate emergency. 

 

Participants each contributed a life sized video portrait for STORYBOX. Each portrait expresses a personal response to climate futures now.
