Over the last few years, immersive storytelling has changed the way we can engage with certain topics. Taking the UN Climate Change Conference as a reminder for what’s at stake for humankind, for one week from 31 October we’ll build a bridge between BFI Southbank in London and Glasgow (where the conference takes place), to remind ourselves that climate change is not only about science, facts and numbers, it’s really about stories and the people behind it. We invite you to come down to BFI Southbank and immerse yourselves in these powerful stories and gain some insight into what’s at risk.
