Are you passionate about imagining and building sustainable environmental futures? Are you interested in the power of storytelling for environmental change? Are you interested in seeing and hearing new stories from within affected communities? If so, come to our screening and discussion event which will showcase films produced by young people from Stoke-on-Trent and New Delhi exploring the problem of urban air pollution which affects both these cities.
Urban air pollution is one of the most urgent environmental problems confronting communities across the world. It is also a problem that is often invisible, hard to pin down, and difficult to communicate powerfully in mainstream media. In this event, you will be able to experience and discuss new ways of telling stories about this issue. Together we will explore strategies for crafting stories that are emotionally engaging, empowering for affected communities, and which generate global solidarities and interconnections. The event will include young filmmakers from Stoke and New Delhi and researchers from UK and India currently working on a research project on storytelling for environmental change.
