Narrative Change for the Green New Deal

Mon, Mar 8, 2021    6:30pm

The 6th Annual Urban Design Storytelling Symposium:
Narrative Change for the Green New Deal

From the graphics of advocacy campaigns to the use of speculative fiction and data visualization in both environmental activism and design practice, multimedia storytelling is a necessary and powerful way to mobilize for a more equitable, decarbonized future. This symposium convened an interdisciplinary group of change agents — activists, artists, architects, and authors — whose work demonstrates that narrative change is essential to policy change.
