My Climate Story: Recipes for Crafting, Telling, & Sharing Your Own

This free workbook introduces a set of tools to explore, document, and share how global climate change is impacting your life and your environment–the people and places around you.

The tools and tips in this workbook are presented in four short chapters and introduce you to different kinds of climate stories. The first chapter encourages you to explore nonhuman stories and to document how climate change impacts plants and animals. The second chapter guides you to research, tell, and share your own climate story. The third teaches you to conduct climate conversations and climate interviews. The fourth lays out how to host your own MCS workshop. Each chapter has accompanying slides, activities, and resources.
