Using stories and storytelling performances in the service of sustainability
In addition to be a storytelling, I am a sustainability consultant and environmental communicator. I use stories and storytelling to raise awareness of today’s sustainability challenges and encourage thought and action. If you’re curious about the power of storytelling in these contexts, do get in touch.

CAN STORIES SHIFT ENVIRONMENTAL THINKING?
Research project: “senstories”
As part of my PhD, I am currently researching how multi-layered stories told in natural spaces with sensory inputs affects environmental thinking.
Suzanne (Ziyadliwa) told us three extraordinary stories in a show called ‘Blue Planet’. It felt a bit like a dystopian tale, but she backed up her futuristic characters with science stories and folk tales – which I wasn’t expecting – and we all left committed to make better environmental choices! She was easy to work with, had great ideas for integrated events, and we’d have her back in a heartbeart. Thank you, Suzanne!
