The Story Of Us: Why does Climate Fiction Matter?

23 Oct 2024
Fiction can offer a counterbalance to narratives of doom and despair by offering stories of resilience, adaptation, and hope. By highlighting tales of human ingenuity, solidarity, and perseverance in the face of environmental adversity, fiction can mitigate feelings of helplessness and empower readers to believe in the possibility of positive change.
