Flourishing requires imagination
If climate change means that we need to change a lot about our society in order to adapt and thrive, then we need imagination to envision new ways of doing things. But while climate fiction has emerged as a new genre, the stories within it lean dystopian.
We need more hopeful stories to awaken imagination and help inspire the next generation of climate solutions.
That’s why members of the On Deck Climate Tech fellowship started the Flourish Fiction project. Inspired by a storytelling workshop led by Roope Mokka of Untitled, they saw an opportunity to bring together diverse writers with diverse knowledge of climate solutions to share hopeful visions for the future in the form of short stories.
Although the project began within the fellowship with early stories written by Climate Tech fellows, the project now accepts submissions of short fiction stories and poetry from around the world, because we believe that everyone has a role to play in imagining and creating a better future.
