Let’s share the truth about climate change

Documenting Climate Change aims to mobilise documentary storytellers of all disciplines to raise awareness globally, and across all sectors of society, about the issues and challenges posed by anthropogenic climate change. Through creating a community of storytellers, promoting collaboration and support, and providing training where needed, we aim to help create and share local, human-centric stories, as well as solutions-focused stories and stories created in a participatory way with communities being impacted directly by climate change.

We aim to provide an empowering, supportive environment for storytellers of all disciplines to gain the support, knowledge and experience necessary to create impactful human-centric stories, created in a considered and ethical way in communities across the globe, that can engage the general public, business leaders and policymakers, and inspire positive, meaningful action at a local and global level.

We are developing a range of workshops to help documentary storytellers of all disciplines refine their skills, expand their practice to other media, and learn how to better engage people on the topic of climate change.



We are building a community of documentary storytellers passionate about telling the truth about climate change through the creation of engaging, human-centric stories local to them – including more solutions-focused stories.



This site will become a platform for featuring work on the issue of anthropogenic climate change – the causes, the impacts, the mitigation efforts, and efforts to adapt – from documentary storytellers of all disciplines.
