Title:
Environmental Storytelling
Topic:
Using the environment to develop storytelling techniques.
Summary:
One of the best ways to teach a lesson is to tell a story. In this workshop, you will learn simple storytelling techniques, identify important ‘teachable’ stories in your life, and craft a successful oral tale. The focus will be on telling the stories that demonstrate the positive environmental future we all want to see. Not only that – you’ll thrill to a gripping story of struggle, competition, life, and death that took place in Christina’s worm composter!
