What's happening in Storyhouse Climate?

Join us for an inspiring, uplifting and proactive day of presentations, panels, practical workshops, performances, activities and climate-led conversations, and one which will help empower everyone who attends to play their own part in protecting our planet.

We may all lead different lives, but one thing we have in common is that we inhabit the same planet – and how we treat our rapidly changing world is important, not just for us now but for the generations to come.

Storyhouse is proud to be staging a day of events – Storyhouse Climate – this autumn which will consider the climate crisis and what we can all do about it. Some of the leading scientists and thinkers in their fields will gather under the Storyhouse roof on Friday 4 November to share their knowledge and research, and explore solutions to the challenges currently facing the earth. Click here to download the day’s schedule.

The day is also a chance for people of all ages and backgrounds who care about the environment to come together and get engaged in the conversation. Storyhouse Climate has been organised in conjunction with the University of Chester.
