Imagining Our Climate Futures (Online)

Event Details

If we hope to achieve the global will and cooperation needed to meet the challenges of the climate crisis, we need stories of hope and transformation, not just disaster and deprivation. These stories should be rooted both in local realities and scientific insights. If we can inspire communities around the world to imagine their own positive climate futures, we can begin to imagine and undertake the work it will take to rebuild the world’s economies and cultures on more sustainable foundations. 

The Climate Imagination Fellowship, presented by the Center for Science and the Imagination at Arizona State University, aims to create positive stories about the future that catalyze action in the present. Join fellows Libia Brenda, the first Mexican woman to be nominated for the Hugo Award, and Vandana Singh, a speculative fiction author and professor of physics, for a conversation about storytelling, hope, and climate justice. The discussion will be moderated by Ed Finn, director of the Center for Science and the Imagination and the Climate Imagination Fellowship.

This event is part of the Hay Festival Arequipa, Peru, a global digital literary festival taking place from November 1-7, 2021.

This virtual event is free and open to everyone. Simultaneous translation from English to Spanish is available. Learn more and register today!
