Submit Your Climate Story

Write your Climate Story

A climate story is a personal account of climate change from your experiences and observations, ranging from despair to hope, from loss to empowerment. Sharing climate stories personalizes climate change in a way that connects communities rather than divides them from one another.

If you are unsure where to begin, read through our storytelling guide for background reading and tips on how to write your climate story.

How to Submit Your Story

Written Climate Story Submission Guidelines:

We recommend climate stories be at least 300 words; they can be as long as you like. We also request you include 2–3 photographs that represent your story. Your submission may be featured on Climate Generation’s online storytelling collection.
