Writing the Environment

In a world on the brink of ecological collapse, what responsibility do storytellers have to speak for the planet? What role (if any) can good nature and science-focussed writing (both fiction and non-fiction) play in pulling us back from the edge? Panelists discuss the writer’s role in educating, provoking conversation and changing attitudes through storytelling.
