Inside the Greenhouse works to deepen our understanding of how issues associated with climate change can be communicated, by creating artifacts through interactive theatre, film, fine art, performance art, television programming and appraising as well as extracting effective methods for multimodal climate communication.

Creative framing and storytelling of issues surrounding climate change through video, theatre, dance and writing can connect a wider audience to the deep and pressing need to address climate change.

Our efforts to engage our students, those working at the science-policy interface, and the public alike seek to help concerned make climate change meaningful in the lives of everyday people. Students are involved directly and collaboratively connecting work in the classroom to applied contexts.

Inside the Greenhouse offers climate communication courses and public events, including a climate change video competition (deadline April 1; see info and sign up below).

Climate communication courses at the University of Colorado Boulder:

  • Fall: Climate Change and Film (ATLS 3519/EBIO 4460) with Professor Rebecca Safran
  • Spring: Creative Climate Communication (ENVS 3173/THTR 4173) with Professors Beth Osnes and Max Boykoff
