This planet is our COMMON ground.
Let's make protecting it our COMMON sense.
To advance a thriving planet for all, by sharing the human connection through the power of storytelling.
Stories have been used for thousands of years to share ideas, advance change, and bridge divides. Stories for Action provides a space to share the stories that do just that, and in doing so, works to inspire and accelerate the regenerative systems necessary for a thriving planet. We curate and capture stories of planetary solutions that unite divided groups, amplify the voices of frontline communities, create clear calls to action, and address the lost connection between humans and nature.
Find a story that inspires you to take action in your community or line of work. Share it with your network, workplace, classroom, or elected officials. Submit your own story and create a call to action for others. Contact a professional storyteller to help bring your stories to light or enroll as a storyteller within the Network (in development).
How We Work
Regenerative means to renew or restore better than it was before; beyond sustainable. We believe regeneration can be applied to all systems; social, ecological, economic, food, energy. To achieve this, a paradigm shift is needed. As long as protecting our environment and standing up for a just society is a divisive issue, this shift will not occur. By sharing our stories, we can find our common ground & see the success in uniting our efforts. We can put a human face to the existential crisis of environmental degradation, and prove that it is not a distant threat. The environment is not just wild, pristine landscapes. It is our air, drinking water, food, communities, and our family's safety.
Communities & businesses around the world are seeing the clear connection between a healthy environment & healthy societies. It is time to shift the cultural narrative; the push for a thriving environment is also a push for public health, resilient economies, social & racial justice, jobs...not protecting one at the cost of the other. We envision a world where human systems and natural systems thrive...together.
Promising solutions on this front come to light every day; both from new innovations and traditional knowledge. It is important that these stories of solutions are shared with the public, policymakers, and between industries; to inform, forge connections, and accelerate action.
As the original storytellers and stewards of this land, Stories for Action honors the importance in amplifying the voices and leadership of Indigenous Peoples. We work to curate content from a diversity of communities, and stress the importance of amplifying stories told by storytellers from those communities.
