I’ve just returned from the Climate Reality Leadership Corps training in Chicago where some 1,500 people from around the world gathered to learn how to become mentors and world changers to confront the critical issue of our time – Climate Change.
This event has been life-changing for me. I now have the tools to take my skills to the next level to share my story and engage others in the fight of our lives. I join another 5,000 climate leaders from around the globe who are committed to build a better world.
I have been fortunate to learn from Al Gore and a group of world class communicators, strategists and organizers. I have learned how to talk to people about the science of climate change and how the climate crisis affects all of us – you and I. I will be reaching out through social media, my online publication (BoomerWarrior), public speaking, blogging, letter writing, meeting with politicians and storytelling.
This post is about the art of storytelling. One of the presenters at the Chicago training was Jonah Sachs, Co-founder and CEO of Free Range Studios.
Our stories shape our future, our stories are cultural DNA….We can create an entirely new world if we find the courage and the inspiration to share our own great stories. I hope you do that because nothing is more important in this world right now.
The following video is about the significance of ‘storytelling’.
