TippingPoint: Climate Change and the Stories We Tell

We hear many stories about climate change – from scientists, economists and environmentalists. But what can the worlds of fiction, poetry, non-fiction and drama contribute to how we understand and respond to this complex issue? This event will explore the power of narrative in helping us come to terms with climate change.

Professor Harriet Bulkeley and Professor Louise Bracken from Durham University, will be joined by authors Justina Hart and Sarah Thomas, winners of Weatherfronts commissions, as part of the TippingPoint/Free Word project, Weatherfronts, which connects the arts and climate science worlds.

Chaired by Professor Janet Stewart, Durham University

This is a Durham Book Festival commission in association with TippingPoint, Free Word and ESRC
