Creating and sharing 1000 better stories of Scottish community climate action and social justice to inspire change to a fair and thriving future for all
At SCCAN, we are committed to supporting community-led action to address climate and nature emergencies. We believe that the path to a just, thriving and resilient Scotland is paved with great stories told in the voices of those who are already imagining and building better futures.
Often against significant odds, many communities are implementing locally developed solutions to meeting local needs. We want to help tell and amplify these diverse, inspiring stories of change to a broader audience. We want to do it in a variety of genres and formats. And we want to form a creative storytelling collective of climate and community engaged voices to truly transform what is possible.
The only thing that will replace a narrative and drive change we need to make a better world is a thousand better stories.
We do this through:
- 1000 Better Stories podcast and blog,
- training and skillshares,
- and mini-grants for story contributors (next deadline 31 October 2023).
We welcome any other ideas for collaboration and mutual support in climate engaged storytelling.
