Our Planet. Our Future. Our Responsibility.

Participating Playwrights

They come from every inhabited continent on the globe, represent over 25 cultures, are from industrialized and developing countries, urban and rural areas, and range in age from early 20s to mid 60s. Some are from low-lying island nations threatened by sea level rise, others are from countries facing severe heatwaves, floods, or droughts. Some are recent migrants, some inhabit the country their ancestors chose or were brought to, and many live on and fiercely protect the land where they were born. Together, they create an incredibly diverse and talented group with widely different perspectives. They are:
