Everyone has a climate change story

Telling and sharing stories, from the scientific to the personal, is one the most important tools we have to understand climate change and imagine a resilient, equitable future. Stories help us share knowledge and document both the challenges of and solutions to living in an ever changing world. We all have a climate change story to tell – including the Preserving Legacies team. We hope our stories, shared here, act as vectors for empathy, education, and ultimately climate action that connects communities, continents, and cultures.
