The Colby Environmental Humanities Initiative has been working in partnership with the Climate Stories Project, founded by Dr. Jason Davis. The goal of this project is to collect testimonies from individuals across the world who have been personally affected by climate change. As part of our collaboration with the Climate Stories Project, the EH Initiative has collected stories from a number of Colby faculty, students, and staff. We hope that by sharing these personal accounts, we can take the overwhelming and impersonal issue of climate change and break it down to an individual, relatable level. Please take a moment to listen to the climate stories below, and to reflect on your own climate story.
