Humans & Climate Change Stories raise environmental awareness and action by documenting the effects of climate change on 12 families around the globe, over a period of 10 years. Each of the families are subject to different types of climate change phenomena, while each story focuses on 3 members of each family, representing different generations. Through this immersive multimedia form of storytelling, viewers can identify with the characters and gain a strong understanding of the effects of climate change and our capacity for resilience. By utilizing local knowledge and scientific publications, the social, economic and geopolitical forces that have an impact on environmental phenomena are also placed into perspective.
Humans & Climate Change Stories began in 2017 and is supported by the International Organization for Migrations (IOM) and the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. Designed to engage with youth and reach wide audiences through exhibits in public spaces, this initiative was exhibited in CoP23, the United Nations in Geneva, and the Food and Agricultural Organization’s headquarters.
