Storytelling for sustainability
This workshop with Kenneth Mølbjerg Jørgensen will work with storytelling as a concept for re-embedding organizational politics and practice in nature’s life cycles. Storytelling is important for sustainability work in many different ways. Storytelling denotes the way in which we reconfigure events and places into new stories. It furthermore creates continuity between the past and future and helps emplacing ourselves in places and spaces. Importantly, it is also through storytelling that we can extend ourselves in time and space and imagine other futures. The workshop will work with different storytelling practices for changing towards sustainability.
