We Still Have a Chance has this ethos at its heart. Building on the poetic legacy of One Chance Left, our project unveils 12 stories for the 12 days of COP27, connecting science, human health, art and activism; the UK and Egypt; the Global North and Global South.
We brought together 150 climate scientists, health professionals, youth activists, artists, and storytellers from the UK and Egypt in a series of virtual creative writing workshops. By using the themes of ‘water’, ‘food’, and ‘adaptation’ characters were created and narrative threads emerged. In a unique editorial process these were woven into 12 short stories, written in both English and Arabic, to represent everyone who took part.
Our stories have inspired a range of creative outputs – from digital recordings to theatrical performances in Cairo, Alexandria, Sharm El-Sheikh and Exeter, which you can access or read about here. We hope these stories spark new ideas, possibilities, and energy to take action to protect our planet.
Time is running out, and we have to act now.
