The Watercooler - Issue #62: Our Home is Burning

This November the Watercooler will dive into the hottest topic of all, Climate Change

Re-useable bags, indigenous lives and homes being threatened, bamboo toothbrushes, the Amazon burning, paper straws, eco systems collapsing, keep cups, global strikes, and eco-friendly packaging. It all seems so incremental and overwhelming at the same time, and yet somehow all of these things intertwine.

This November the Watercooler will dive into the hottest topic of all, Climate Change, as we investigate the personal responses some of Auckland’s best have had to this global problem. Join indigenous youth climate activist Emily Muli, eco-minded creative Forrest Denize, and Pacific Climate Warrior Sivendhra Michael as they tell us all about how they grapple with the climate emergency.

It will be an evening of educational, inspiring solidarity. Come join the revolution!

Inspired by many well-known storytelling events held worldwide (The Moth, This American Life), The Watercooler is a platform for people from all walks to tell stories both true and imagined. Storytellers are given a simple brief to share a story inspired by the month’s theme, whether based on real-life experiences or entirely fictional.
