Addressing the systemic causes of environmental destruction depends on fostering environmental awareness among the non-scientific public. This staged reading explores the relationship between human beings and the natural world through a merging of scientific research, poetic wisdom, political activism, climate-change denials, environmental writing and pleas from beleaguered indigenous communities.
The production will be made available online for interested groups to access, perform and use as an organizing tool to promote broader awareness of the climate crisis. The researchers will track results and measure the efficacy of this effort to make environmental challenges approachable and understandable.
