How To Create Inspiring Stories to Change Society

We are bringing people together to unleash the transformative power of storytelling. These workshops will be taking place at the intersection of journalism, film-making and activism.

3.30pm–5.30pm Climate and Science Communication - Franziska Mager & Irem Couchouron

Since the 1970s, we have known that climate change is real, and researchers have been making recommendations for action since then too. But somehow politics and the general public have turned a blind eye to the issue for far too long. This workshop will offer researchers the basic tools to get them heard and reach critical audiences.
