When we think about climate change, and what we and others can do to make a difference, most people don’t think of storytelling. For a long time, the way that we have communicated about climate change has mostly been through a scientific perspective and led by “experts” and those credentialed to talk about it—sending the implicit message that we are not all equipped to be part of the climate conversation. Yet, we are in a time when climate change is all around us, so we are experts in our experiences. Our personal stories are an important way to balance the science, bring the data into context, and create the combination of head and heart, which is essential for sparking and sustaining action. Change Narrative is an organization working to shift this narrative by building capacity in the climate justice movement through the power of our stories. Through a coaching practice, founder Jothsna Harris supports people in crafting their personal stories of climate change and finding the power of their voice to advocate for solutions.
