Hello Potential Collaborators!
Join us for Climate Change Theatre Action 2021: Envisioning a Global Green New Deal.
What might an equitable, sustainable, decarbonized, and just society look like? What if the concept of a Green New Deal – a policy platform to reduce greenhouse gas emissions while also addressing interwoven societal problems, adopted by climate advocates worldwide – could become reality?
Here’s how you can help: Host an event in your community!
WHAT: Readings and performances of short plays written under the theme “Envisioning a Global Green New Deal.”
WHEN: September 19 – December 18, 2021
WHERE: Wherever you are.
WE PROVIDE: A collection of 50 short plays from around the world written under the theme “Envisioning a Global Green New Deal,” a list of resources to help make your Action effective and unique, organizational and marketing support, and a lot of enthusiasm!
YOUR CONTRIBUTION: You agree to organize and present an event between September 19 and December 18, 2021 using at least one play from our collection. Your event can be anything from an intimate reading to a fully staged show, and from a podcast to a site specific performance. Please note: We expect everyone to adhere to COVID-19 guidance on in-person gatherings and encourage you to be creative. Events can be presented online, outdoors, socially-distanced, etc.
