My interview about the Climate Listening Project in January’s Laurel of Asheville Magazine is now online: http://www.thelaurelofasheville.com/editorial/climate-listening-project-documents-environmental-changes
“The series featured climate stories from around the world,” says Dayna. “We started reaching out to people to tell their climate stories here at home and had a great response. Not only did we hear stories of impacts from climate disruption, but also learned why people care about climate change and what they are doing to create community resilience.”
No stranger to environmental activism, Dayna started working in film at age 19 as a spokesperson for endangered species conservation. She has appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX networks, and coordinated features for Animal Planet, TLC, and the Food Network. She’s also collaborated on environmental and sustainability initiatives with celebrities like Woody Harrelson and Fortune 500 companies like Discovery Communications, as well as helped grow nature-based businesses with Accelerating Appalachia.
Dayna hopes CLP will inspire collaboration and create a problem-solving mindset. More than 50 stories have been shared so far via Facebook photo memes, short video clips, and the CLP trailer, accessible on YouTube. The project has been featured locally on WLOS and in national media.
“Farmer, restaurant owner, climate scientist, faith leader—they all share their stories,” says Dayna. “These are stories of people being resilient and I hope they inspire more solutions and more ways people can connect to join the conversation at home, work and in their community.”
