As a Climate Stories Ambassador, we ask that you record your own climate story and carry out and record 1-3 climate story interviews with people in your own community during a 3-month time span. Following the initial online training, we ask that you take part in two additional online meetings to discuss your progress with other Ambassadors and learn from each other about using climate storytelling to promote an effective response to the climate crisis.
