Because empathy connects us and climate change affects us
What are Postcards from Climate Change?
We launched a project called “Postcards from Climate Change,” and we want you to be a part of it! Here’s how it works. We’re collecting stories from across the country, and then pairing those storytellers up with local filmmakers who will then turn the story into an inspirational short film.
The “Postcards from Climate Change” series was born in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. A freelancer videographer, Cheryl Hess, sent Greenpeace some amazing footage from her hometown of Toms River, New Jersey. While the scenes were often somber of people picking up their lives, it was also fun, quirky, and very Jersey shore. From there, Greenpeace’s video team started asking filmmaker friends to send us snapshots about how climate change was affecting their communities both in impacts and solutions. Last year we produced nine shorts. Together these stories connect the dots of how we are all being affected.
We believe there is power in these stories.
