Climate Fiction – Science, Stories or Seeds of Transformation?
(CSPO faculty participants.)
The Imagination and Climate Futures Initiative invites you to a panel discussion on Cli-Fi that will discuss the nature and roots of the genre and its impact or influence beyond simply telling stories. Can a story trigger a social movement? Does it offer science lessons? Could a book change politics or societies?
