Together with colleague Hana Begovic I will facilitate the workshop ”Cultivating Ecological Literacy through the Language of Nature”.

We must understand the power of narrative. Why is this important? Words matter because the way we use words and the meaning we place in them (re)produces certain patterns and perceptions of our place within Earth’s diverse web of life. Our words and our stories produce narratives about the world we live in, shaping values, laws, norms, behaviours and governance. We see how today’s dominant narrative fuels a system which is destroying the very preconditions of life. So, what if we can change the system by changing the narrative?

This workshop will be a part from the IUCN Youth Summit 2021.
