Storytelling for a Greener World is a treasury of forty-three stories, creative activities, techniques, tips, and descriptions of inspiring practice to both empower newcomers and seasoned storytellers. The book provides a handy, unique, and authoritative resource for developing innovative story-work and will be a key sourcebook of lasting usefulness. This handbook offers time-tested stories, creative activities, and methods that environmental educators and storytellers can use to encourage sound environmental behavior. Whether it is a brief mention of seeing a skein of geese flying in an evening sky or children from a rough area being inspired by kittiwakes, both adults and children can engage profoundly with nature through the imaginative power of story, with lasting personal and environmental changes. Storytelling for a Greener World explores the links between storytelling and emotional literacy; place and environmental justice; connecting with alienated youngsters and encouraging children and adult curiosity about nature; building community and sustainability; indigenous peoples and local legends; human-animal communication and how to co-create a sustainable future together.
