This evening with DEVI LOCKWOOD, author of 1,001 Voices on Climate Change, will bring together the Penn community with participants in PPEH's year-long My Philadelphia Climate Story public research project — nine high school teachers working in eight Philadelphia School District schools across the city — for a gathering focused on climate storytelling. A reception will follow.

Listen Up! is a two-day climate week program on October 12 and 13 that provides the first opportunity for My Philadelphia Climate Story teachers and their students, to see and meet one another and members of the Penn community, to participate in climate storytelling workshops, and to learn from and talk with prominent climate storytellers. This program is presented by Penn Program in Environmental Humanities and Kelly Writers House, with generous support from our colleagues at Comparative Literature , Environmental Innovations Initiative, and The Andrea Mitchell Center for the Study of Democracy.

DEVI LOCKWOOD is the Commentary and Ideas editor at The Philadelphia Inquirer and the author of 1,001 VOICES ON CLIMATE CHANGE, a book published by Simon & Schuster in 2021. Previously, she worked as an editor and writer at the New York Times Opinion section and launched the Ideas section at Rest of World. She spent five years traveling in 20 countries on six continents to document 1,001 stories on water and climate change.
