Weather Stations has now finished!

This project has now finished. Do take a look at the stories, poems and writing that came out of the project from across all five countries and see how our writers, readers and students have explored and touched on issues of climate change through creative writing. We hope you find this work inspiring.

 

You can see the final anthology that brings together highlights of all the creative work from this site in three languages here.

Substations in Berlin for Literature Festival say hello to Australia!

Substations groups from Berlin, Dublin, London and Hel in Poland are preparing to share a sample of work they’ve created as part of the Weather Stations Project for a closing event in the International Literature Festival in Berlin.

On the first day, the groups created a world map and reflected on their relationship to different parts of the world. They discussed how different continents feel the impact of climate change differently.

As part of the process, the group couldn’t help give a shout to their friends in Australia! We miss you!

Watch our Debate on Trust and the Environment

When it comes to the climate, who can you trust?

As part of Free Word Centre’s Weather Stations programme, comedian Tiernan Douieb hosted a lively debate  about how trust affects our understanding of climate change and our willingness to act on it.

The debate featured visiting Weather Stations writer Tony Birch, Tamsin Cooper from Green Alliance, freelance journalist Claudia Delpero and young climate activist Esha Marwaha. With poetry from Orla Price.
