The Impact Lab will bring together creatives working in film, photography and other art forms, selected through an open call, for a two day training and capacity building session where they will learn about how to use their voice, storytelling projects and creative skills to drive social  impact, on the climate crisis in the local context through collaboration with multiple stakeholders.

Following the impact lab, selected projects will participate in the Climate Story Lab event in October with the intention of sparking collaboration between the storytellers and invited partners that range from civil society, policy makers, academia, researchers, journalists, community activists and community organizers.
