Eight youth participants from across the state crafted their personal climate stories.
MCAN ran a four session workshop, Crafting Your Own Climate Story, with teaching artists from the Telling Room. We had eight youth participants from across the state who crafted their personal climate stories, learning and sharing an understanding of their individual place in the climate crisis. These youth writers showed their care about the place they live in and observed the changes around them. All our stories will connect us through understanding the effect the climate crisis is having on our lives and will inspire us to action to confront the climate crisis. Enjoy these youths’ stories!
"Natua's fury burned hotter than magma. She was brutal. Plague after plague, each more threatening than the last. The ground shook, oceans churned, fires devoured everything. Even the plants and animals answered her call for vengeance, eager to bite back."

"A little girl sits on the ground in her backyard, tiny fingers deliciously intertwined with the soft blades of grass. The world belongs to her, and she belongs to the world."
