Event Details:

Are you interested in strengthening your storytelling and advocacy skills about issues impacting health, animals, climate, and the environment? In this dynamic and interactive workshop, participants will jump into fun, low-pressure, group and partner activities that will get people to practice the skills and mindsets that fuel effective collaboration and communication. These include: listening, building on the ideas of others, turning mistakes into new opportunities, trusting our ideas, and using storytelling as effective communication.

The workshop will be led by Collective Capital, a change and innovation consultancy based in San Francisco and New York City, facilitated by Austin Meyer and Zoe Novic. Austin is a Stanford graduate and documentary filmmaker who has reported on Planetary Health issues around the world, and Zoe is a public health advocate working with California hospitals.

What to expect:

  • Provide a framework for learning about, communicating and advocating for One Health and Planetary Health
  • Get students to step out of their comfort zone and practice taking risks in a psychologically safe environment
  • Help students hone their creative voice as environmental communicators

Co-sponsored by the Center for Innovation in Global Health, Stanford Master of Arts in Earth Systems, Environmental Communication Program, Stanford Notation in Science Communication, and Stanford Human and the Planetary Health Initiative.
