re-telling climate change stories

Comedy for Climate Change

Humor is a tool underutilized in the area of climate change; yet comedy has power to effectively connect people, information, ideas, and new ways of thinking/acting.

In this project, Spring 2016 and Spring 2017 'Creative Climate Communication' (ENVS3173/THTR4173) students developed a climate change-related sketch comedy or stand-up acts and performed it on stage during a live CU-Boulder performance in March.

In addition, Inside the Greenhouse held a competition to harness the powers of climate comedy through compelling, resonant and meaningful short videos.
