Each fellow will write an original piece of short climate fiction, building on local opportunities, challenges, resources and complexities, and drawing on conversations with experts in a variety of fields, ranging from climate science to sociology to energy systems to biodiversity. They will also write a set of shorter “flash-fiction” pieces exploring a range of other possible futures shaped by the climate crisis and our collective responses to it. These pieces of short fiction will be collected, along with essays, interviews, art and interactive activities, in a “Climate Action Almanac,” to be published in 2022.
The fellows will also participate in public events, panels, and workshops. Kim Stanley Robinson serves as senior adviser. The fellowship is hosted by Center for Science and the Imagination and sponsored by a grant from the ClimateWorks Foundation.
