Communicating Sustainability:

Improving and Analysing the Climate Narrative.

Rethinking Climate is a youth-led non profit that tries to open conversations about complex and overlooked climate issues to make them more personal and accessible through interviews, engagement, and research. It was born from a personal consideration that there is currently a gap in the sustainability communication.

It is not only our narrative about sustainability, but how this is carried out.

On our podcast we interview professionals from diverse fields. We trust experts from a global network to bring different perspectives to our learning journey to show that there is a space for everyone in the climate movement.

Our mission is to use this project to provide objective considerations on this matter through research and various partnerships. Our next biggest step is to become an organization.
