Storyteller Collective

The Storytellers Collective is an emerging group of Scotland-based storytellers who are using their creativity to amplify stories of community-led climate action. We have the ambition to engage wider audiences in conversations around their concrete visions for a beautiful, irresistible change that can inspire our communities around Scotland.
