Voiceover: “Our documentary team and expert advisers filmed across the United States. We traveled to Paris for the international Climate Talks. And then we went to Belize to follow the story of a bird that is connecting people around the world. We’ve been following these connectors: a bird we love, the food we eat, our faith, families, and businesses — the things we care about, the things we need. We listened to business owners, resilient farmers, climate scientists, faith leaders and community members. And, as more and more people and groups showed up, it became about connection and collaboration, sharing these hopeful conversations so many of us want to be having about our global community. We are the Climate Listening Project. We’re not trying to convince anyone that climate change is real, we’re just showing the real people impacted by climate change and the real people creating solutions. People like you. People like me. Let’s listen.”
Thank you to everyone who has been on this journey with me. It has been an honor to be doing this work. Thank you to you – all the stars, collaborators, and friends of the Climate Listening Project.
