TASMANIAN CLIMATE CHANGE STORIES

SHARE YOUR STORY

This site aims to give Tasmanian students a voice and produce a living library of how climate change is affecting them, their local communities and their future health, safety, jobs and more.

By collecting stories about climate change, students can assess for themselves the impacts and consider changes that we might all need to make.

Sharing stories and experiences is the way people communicate and learn, pass on knowledge and form judgements. Hearing stories first-hand is more powerful and meaningful than relaying someone else's experience.  This innovative interactive citizen science project aims to collect stories from Tasmanians about the impacts of climate change.
