Eco-storytelling - Your story can change our planet’s future

Storytelling can be an incredibly powerful tool, especially when in the hands of those seeking to change the world around them.

During COP26, we’ve partnered with Restless Development to support five Youth Power Climate Reps. We’ve hosted a session on Eco-storytelling to help young activists own their stories while changing the planet’s future. There was big interest in the session and it was a great opportunity to connect with so many of you across the world who want to make a difference.

As part of the session, our Youth Power Climate Reps shared their own stories both in spoken and written form. We looked at their written stories to explore what makes a powerful story and how to inspire others to work on their own narratives to make a change.

Our team also presented a brief introduction to storytelling and the questions to answer when working on your own story of change.

If you missed the session, you can check out the recording here.

We’re hoping you’ll be inspired by their stories as much as we did!

Keep an eye on our channels as there will be more similar sessions in the future.

Powering feminist climate justice with Global Fund for Women

“Women and girls in Africa and the Caribbean are leading climate justice movements, but there aren’t many funders who will give money to young, emerging organisations and movements like these—who might not be formally registered or have long track records of doing this work. That’s why I’m focused on shifting money, power, and other non-financial resources to feminist climate activists so they can build their agency, control their narratives, and scale up their actions. It means meeting groups where they are while providing the resources for them to get to where they need to be to have the greatest impact.” Ayesha Constable, Technical Director for Climate Justice at Global Fund for Women
