listening, sharing, collaborating

The Climate Listening Project explores the connections between climate change, food, faith, environment, business, and community; and weaves together the latest climate science and resilience thinking with inspiring stories from across America and around the globe.

This is a collaboration of artists, businesses, bloggers, filmmakers, faith leaders, scientists, photographers, poets, corporations, nonprofit organizations, farmers, government groups, communities, and individuals. The Climate Listening Project launched in October 2014 in Asheville, North Carolina, home to many of the world’s leading climate think tanks and Nobel Peace Prize winning climate scientists. The project is evolving into a platform to talk about climate change and community, connecting millions of people around the world and accelerating hopeful, solutions-focused climate change conversations.

“I’m inspired by this new Climate Listening Project and such a fan of Dayna Reggero’s work. It celebrates life and our beautiful piece of the planet, looks the reality of climate change in the eye and brings tremendous, refreshing hope through human stories of innovation and resilience.” Joshua Martin, Director, Environmental Paper Network

“A very effective and immediate way to display climate change on a local and personal level.” Cleantechnica.com

“Talking about the climate issues and challenges we face is the first step in developing strategies and tools for resilience in our communities, sustainable business models and adapting to the changes we can see coming.” Our Southern Community Radio

“Aesthetically, artistically, coherently … just beautiful storytelling.” Climate Scientist

“It’s freedom of speech that is the essence behind the Climate Listening Project. Giving people the permission and space to fully explore how climate change affects them — from their farm fields to their faith — and what inspires them to take action makes the conversation more accessible and tangible for everyone.” Edenkeeper.org
