Event Description



How can writers use narrative and storytelling to help raise awareness about the ongoing climate crisis? Join GrubStreet and Rare's Climate Culture Boston for an engaging evening with a panel of distinguished local writers, environmental policy experts, and community activists, including Julie Carrick Dalton, Reverend Mariama White-Hammond, Frank Lowenstein, Porsha Olayiwola, and Rishi Reddi. We’ll discuss the role of storytelling in effective science communication, the impact of climate change on local communities, especially those historically marginalized, and how writers can help inspire action and drive policy change for a more sustainable and equitable future for our planet and all its inhabitants. A reception will follow.

Virtual viewers can register for the Crowdcast livestream here!
