March 2022 Newsletter - 2020-21 Annual Report and REN Showcase Recap!


We hope you are enjoying the start of spring! We want to share with you some highlights from our Reclaiming the Environmental Narrative Showcase last month, as well as the Be The Change Earth Alliance Annual Report for 2021.

RECAP: Reclaiming the Environment Narrative Showcase

A HUGE thank you to everyone who made it to our Reclaiming the Environmental Narrative Showcase on March 6! Our event was co-facilitated by the incredible Jestinne Punzalan from Shades of Sustainability, and youth climate organizer Naomi Leung.  A recording of the presentations will be available to everyone who registered on Eventbrite.

This Showcase was the culmination of a Reclaiming the Environmental Narrative (REN), a pilot project where Be the Change mentored and trained BIPOC youth to develop multi-media stories about their personal and community connection to climate change.

Our 6 youth storytellers showcased their diverse collection of stories using an incredible range of media including animation, poetry, photo-visual collages, a play, and a completed book. Read more about these incredible youth and their backgrounds below!

Our sincerest thank you to Anica, Anica, ANA, Nafeesa, Naomi, Sophie, and Tuuli for your dedication, creativity, and strength for sharing powerful stories about justice, identity, and belonging in the climate movement.
