co-creating an intergenerational storytelling climate action adventure

 

Welcome to the Climate Collaboratory!

We are individuals and organizations exploring new ways to cooperate, collaborate, and co-create new solutions for a world that works for all living things — that’s 100% of humanity and the community of life on Earth, our home.

Spotlight 2022:  Alachua County, Florida
We’re shining a light on the people who are helping to make a world that works for all.  Alachua County has a climate story to tell.  In 2019-20, the City of Gainesville and Alachua County commissions declared a climate emergency.  Countless individuals and organizations are living their own climate stories, responding to the social and environmental challenges of our time  Our children are watching and learning from us.  They want to be involved in making a world that works for all.  

Our arts-based collaborative storytelling adventure invites young people to take the lead on the Road to 2030, 2050 and Beyond.  Month by month, they develop scenes of “Climate Collaboratory: The Musical,” to be produced for Earth Day in April.  Adults and elders support them in a community-wide climate conversation-to-action program.  They provide needed human, material and spiritual resources for intergenerational collaboration on the social and environmental challenges of our time. 

Join us on the Road to 2030, 2050 and Beyond.  We have a Blueprint for a Better Future.  We’re building a World House where we can all get along.  We’re planting Seed Ideas in the Gardens of Global Unity, where all things are possible.

Ask about growing your Seed Idea in the Gardens of Global Unity
where all things are possible

 

Welcome to the Climate Collaboratory, where young people grow Seed Ideas in the Gardens of Global Unity.  

 

Children and youth take the lead, creating their own action plans.  Adults and elders nurture them with global networks of support.  We recommend these action planning programs:

Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.

“Climate Action for Peace” brings a clear message: the global climate emergency is a threat to security and stability. 

This is the battle of our lives, and a race against time. We can win — and we must.

The mission of the Climate Collaboratory is to make this vision of the Earth Charter a reality:

Let ours be a time remembered for the awakening of a new reverence for life, the firm resolve to achieve sustainability, the quickening of the struggle for justice and peace, and the joyful celebration of life.

    Climate Collaboratory – OVERVIEW

    Several theatre people said they wanted to help develop the musical. I wanted them to see the Big Picture, so I wrote the community-wide program in four levels, with possible roles at the end. Thank you for considering what role you might play in devising "Climate Collaboratory: The Musical."  We're looking for people who can bring their own creativity into the mix.  I hope that each of you will...
