Climate Chronicles: Empowering Voices in Urban Resilience

Editor’s Note: The P2P Climate Ambassador program trains and supports a community of climate leaders across the country. These ambassadors do incredible work on climate solutions. Below is a fantastic initiative being organized by one of our ambassadors in her local community. You can take the training and become an ambassador yourself HERE.

I’m thrilled to share a project that’s been close to my heart. For the past few months, I’ve collaborated with the City of District Heights Sustainability Committee to develop an inspiring initiative named “Climate Chronicles: Empowering Voices in Urban Resilience.” Now, we’re reaching out to you, our community, to help turn this vision into a reality.

The Need for Climate Chronicles
In District Heights, Maryland, and communities nationwide, the impacts of climate change are acutely felt in neighborhoods with limited resources. Through our “Climate Chronicles” workshop, we aim to empower individuals to share their climate stories effectively, transforming them into advocates for change in their communities.

A Call for Your Support
This project couldn’t happen without the support of changemakers like you! You can help make a difference.

    • with your network, friends, and colleagues
    • via social media – X (formerly Twitter) and Instagram

Empowering Underserved Communities
Your support will empower underserved communities to become storytellers for positive change. “Climate Chronicles” is not just a workshop; it’s a movement to raise awareness about climate issues and create a lasting impact in communities that need it the most.

Expanding Impact Nationwide
This project isn’t confined to the City of District Heights. We envision replicating “Climate Chronicles” in several communities across the country, ensuring that youth and women in the environmental and sustainability profession are actively involved in shaping a sustainable future.

A Storytelling Workshop for Advocacy
At its core, “Climate Chronicles” is a storytelling workshop designed to amplify underrepresented voices. We believe that everyone’s story can be used as a tool for advocacy, and this project seeks to provide the platform for those stories to be heard.

Thank you for considering our project and any support you can provide. If you have questions or want to learn more about “Climate Chronicles,” please don’t hesitate to contact Nicole Jackson. Together, we can make a real difference in the fight against climate change.
