Sharing stories is the way people communicate and learn, pass on knowledge, form judgments and act on changes. It is even more powerful when the stories you hear are from your community, your backyard, your home and your country. Come along and hear some Tasmanian climate change stories and share some of your own.
Changing climate in Tasmania: Dr Clothilde Langlais will share the scientific stories she has collected about our water, forest, land and animals, and the extremes they now face.
Tasmanian climate change stories: Ingrid Albion will present her living library, showing how climate change is affecting Tasmanian students and how a website is helping them to raise their voices.
Taking your voice to Antarctica: Ingrid and Clothilde are the two proud Tasmanian women selected for HomewardBound#4 – a leadership program helping them raise their voices and visibility in these critical times of climate change. Ingrid and Clothilde invite you to send your own message to Antarctica when you sign the flag they will take to the frozen continent in November.
The presentations will be followed by a discussion and audience Q&A with an exciting panel to be announced soon.
