We are in a climate emergency. We believe impactful climate communication is more critical than ever before. We need to challenge ourselves to move past the monoculture of past climate narratives by identifying and amplifying a biodiversity of stories and communication as diverse as the ecosystem we seek to save.

Our Theme

Amplifying a people-centered Climate Action through storytelling and communication

Climate Story lab Africa (CSL Africa) brings together storytellers, Community Representatives at the forefront of Climate change and the wider climate stakeholder community to spotlight, discuss and re-imagine a people-centred climate action through radical stakeholder collaboration. We ask the question, What is the Climate Justice Narrative for Africa?

Climate Story Lab Africa centres this discourse on the power of storytelling to shift culture, drive social change, and build communities and movements. In our previous edition, We ran co-curated panels on Energy titled ‘Why is green energy a big deal for Africa?’ on Climate Finance titled ‘Where is the climate money?’ plus roundtables by Community organisers, Creatives and journalists. The two-day event was fused with live illustrations titled ‘Art in action‘ and film impact case studies with live audience participation.

We are convinced, that these factors are shaping our economies, politics and future. They are urgent conversations that need our participation and collective action.
