What's happening in Storyhouse Climate?

Sustainability and climate change are significant challenges of the world we inhabit, with impacts felt at a local, national, or global level. It’s a day-to-day issue, affected by the transport we use, how we heat and power our homes, design our towns, develop our industrial infrastructure, and produce our food; and these all have significant impacts for people, landscapes, and businesses. It affects us all.

Storyhouse, the University of Chester, and the Cheshire Sustainability Forum are partnering up for a day of events on the Friday 4 November 2022.

We would like to invite our community to submit your ideas for a chance to take part in this day of shared knowledge, either as a form of a presentation, poster, practical workshop, Pecha Kucha, a performance, or discussion. You are welcome to cover a wide range of subjects to do with climate change, such as: sustainability and identity, smart cities, ecology, landscape, impacts on people and business, materials, and products, engaging your local communities, bringing people together to act on climate change – and much more.

There is no age limit for participants, so we encourage everyone to come forward and get involved. For any queries, please send an email to

Please submit your idea here.
