As the climate crises deepens, communities desperately need better tools to overcome divisiveness, apathy and other forces that frequently inhibit solutions. It is especially critical for all of us to understand and act on behalf of communities suffering disproportionate impacts of climate change that are least able to respond. In this Episode, Luisa Cortesi, Assistant Professor of Water, Disasters, and Environmental Justice at the International Institute of Social Studies, The Netherlands and Jason Davis, musician and environmental educator based in Boston, Massachusetts will come together to discuss how climate storytelling through visual and performing arts can help unify people from different backgrounds around climate solutions.
