This Action Session brings together people from all over the world to tell the stories of Food, Water and Energy in their cities. Tell us about a moment, an experience, a challenge, an action, an impact, a demand, a frustration, a joy, a project, a desire, and or anything that is relevant to the subject within your urban context. They can be fictional, or not, they can be written as a micro essay, a perspective or point of view, opinion piece, a statement, a poem, or any other form that facilitates expressing your story. Stories can be as short as one sentence and can be no longer than 500 words. They are crafted by participants before the session starts and, after a brief introduction from the session leaders, these stories are read and shared among all of us by each other their authors. All participants are extended an open invitation to be as creative as possible. Depending on the size of the group, we will read the stories in one large group or in smaller breakout groups to make sure all of the stories are read. These stories will then be published on a storytelling atlas hosted by The Nature of Cities as part of the Belmont Forum and Future Earth funded PEGASUS funded project, GOFWEN. We welcome all ages and backgrounds to this session.
