IAWRT USA presents Storytelling: Tips for Producing Social Interest and Impact Stories
Workshop with Raziah Mwawanga of IAWRT Tanzania takes place with pre-registered participants on Zoom on October 2, 2022 | 8am Eastern Standard Time
Part of the My Climate Change Story: Cellphone Cinema Workshop series
When investigating the impact of climate change one most often reads articles written either by scientists, journalists, or scholars. The voices of those who actually experience the devastating effects of this phenomenon are most often unheard.
In order to find a way to develop women and girls into streams of consciousness — looking at common themes: Themes emerging from these stories will be highlighted and used to initiate and forge networks, conversations, and collaboration to craft appropriate and relevant solutions. One of the goals is to teach women and girls to use their cell phones to tell their own stories.
The workshops will prepare women globally with an intergenerational lens to go into their communities, and use their cell phone to create a 3 to 7-minute vignette that will be uploaded to the IAWRT My Climate Change YouTube channel.
The My Climate Change Story YouTube Channel shall be a laboratory for innovation and solutions that can be shared and emulated globally.
