Drawing from years of arts and advocacy work, Jeff Biggers founded the Climate Narrative Project in 2014. Originally based at the University of Iowa, Biggers has introduced the Project to schools, universities and organizations across the country, and collaborated with the Yale Climate Connection's public radio program. Through workshops on visual arts, film, radio, theatre, dance, spoken word and creative writing mediums, Biggers works with institutions and community groups to bring together science, humanities and the arts, reach across academic disciplines, and shape new narratives on climate change and regenerative solutions.
The Climate Narrative Project seeks to train a new generation of “climate storytellers” and climate leaders; to train and provide students, faculty, staff and community members with advanced tools in the narrative arts, public speaking and communication strategies, which they can take back to their respective departments and organizations; to expand the reach and dissemination of academic research for a general audience on and off the campus; to place climate action initiatives in the forefront of school, university and community planning.
The Climate Narrative Project has been featured in local and national media venues, including YCC's nationally syndicated program on National Public Radio, New York Times, Huffington Post, and The Gazette.
