Greenpeace Launches Project "Postcards from Climate Change"
While politicians flounder over climate action, people across America are already doing something. Because they have to. After the devastating Hurricane Sandy roared up the East Coast, communities came together not only to rebuild and repair, but to respond to the very cause of such a mega storm. Motivated by the destruction a polluted atmosphere can cause, people organized after Hurricane Sandy to rebuild sustainably using renewable energy to power their communities.
Greenpeace was inspired after our work in post-Sandy New York with our solar truck, the Rolling Sunlight. We want to hear more from people across the country who are dealing with climate change, and send their messages far and wide.
We’re launching a project called “Postcards from Climate Change”, telling the stories of climate change that are far from melting ice caps and polar bears. These stories are right here in our neighborhoods.
Here’s how it works. We’re collecting submissions from across the country, and then pairing those storytellers up with local filmmakers who can bring these stories to life.
So if you have a story to tell or you’re a filmmaker looking for stories, please give us your contact information so we can start telling the world what climate change means to America.
It’s important for people to know that climate change isn’t just about devastating storms. It’s also about people coming together to find solutions to the cause of all of it. By submitting your postcard from climate change, you can help us tell a story of hope.
