Becoming better storytellers is a critical skill for everyone working for a green future. In this think-and-do workshop, participants will be introduced to the growing movement amongst environmental groups to embrace positive storytelling. Leaders from IDEAS for Us will share some of the techniques anyone can use to become better storytellers and then we’ll break out into small groups to let our positive imaginations run wild.
“It’s all a question of story. We are in trouble just now because we do not have a good story. We are in between stories. The Old Story is not functioning properly, and we have not learned the New Story.” Thomas Berry
