Climate change is happening now and around us. Through stories of people affected by climate change in and around Bengaluru, we hope to build empathy and understanding around climate change issues among the general public living in Bengaluru. By wrapping the overwhelming scientific evidence around climate change in stories of real people, people will be able to relate to this in a more human and deeper way. Our hypothesis is that by making this human connection and by telling compelling stories using rich media, we will be able to more effectively communicate the pressing challenges that Bengaluru faces in the near future. Collective storytelling is a powerful way to navigate turbulent times and foster change. Stories shape how we understand the world, our place in it, and our ability to change it.
