OUR CLIMATE FUTURE, NOW
Creating spaces for honest climate conversations is essential for meaningful change. This Sydney workshop provided an opportunity for participants to connect at an emotional level on what climate futures mean for them. In partnership with Dr Sarah Barns, climate portraits were captured and became part of Esem Project’s STORYBOX Sydney program.

My CLIMATE STORY
In February 2019, I was sitting on the plane at Hong Kong airport, looking out at the city lights, vaguely scrolling through the BBC news on my phone.
I read this story about a small creature called the Bramble Cay Melomys, that until recently lived on islands to the very north of Australia, the Torres Strait. In 2016 it was declared as the first mammalian extinction caused by human-induced climate change. The article went on to say that:
“It was our little brown rat and it was our responsibility to make sure it persisted. And we failed.“
Something in this article broke my heart. I read it and wept. The words ‘we failed’ kept resounding in my head and I felt, somehow, responsible. It was a pivotal moment for me.
Rising sea levels washed this species away. What will be next? Who will be next? Coastal communities around the world are facing this climate emergency every day. The future is rushing to meet us.
Everybody responds differently to climate change.
