Down to Earth Climate Justice Storytelling Project

  

ROSC is a proud fiscal sponsor of Andy Burt's Down to Earth Climate Justice Storytelling Project, which is capturing stories on film that can connect people everywhere to the growing climate justice movement. The film will be the centerpiece of a larger project meant to inspire, motivate, and move people to act on climate in their own communities. Some of the plans of this project include:

  • The creation of a journaling workbook that draws from the filmed stories and may guide people into deeper personal and community commitment to climate and social justice activism
  • A four-week experience that includes four workshops featuring the film, invited guest activists, visioning exercises, and time for sharing workshop participants' own stories arising out of daily journaling in the workbook guide.
  • A virtual workshop experience similar to the one described above.
  • A two-hour workshop including the film and time for reflection on filmed stories that spoke to audience members.
  • A handout with opportunities for further reflection and action steps and resources.
