We want to tell 1000 Better Stories of community climate action to help everyone imagine a better and fairer future for all. Join us this Autumn to learn how to create powerful audio stories about what your own community and others are already doing, and to help inspire the groundswell of change that’s so urgently needed.

Our Autumn Stories for Change workshop series will give you an easy to follow introduction to using audio for storytelling. We focus on easy to use, affordable or free equipment and software to make audio storytelling accessible for all.

We also help you share your story to a wider audience. You can:

publish the story you create during part 1 and 2 of training through our 1000 Better Stories podcast’s Everyday Changemaker series.

produce a longer episode for 1000 Better Stories podcast or an audio tour of your community projects (we have storytelling mini-grants to support this work).

Or even launch your own podcast!

Super Simple Audio Editing workshop on Tuesday, 19 of September, 10am-12pm is the the second of four planned for this Autumn and it will cover:

an introduction to using Descript for editing audio – it’s as easy and fun as editing a text doc!

making it sound good

adding intro, outros, and music

hands on practice in editing

exporting your finished audio and transcript


an opportunity to network with others

contributing your recorded interview to Everyday Changemaker series and joining SCCAN Storytelling Collective

BEFORE YOU COME ALONG: We recommend you complete Stories for Change Part 1: Super Simple Audio Recording but it’s not essential. Bring your own recordings to edit and register for a Descript account.

By the end of the workshop you will also be able to contribute your finished interview through our Everyday Changemaker podcast series or to use in your own audio projects.

You can continue to build your audio storymaking skills through upcoming Stories for Change workshops:

October, 2 x half-days, Stories for Change 3/4: Creating captivating place-based soundwalks with the app (details tbc)

November, 2 hours, Stories for Change 4/4: Creating an engaging community podcast (details tbc)

You can also join in our regular Podcasting Skillshare to hear from others using climate-engaged audio storytelling and to get feedback on your own projects (upcoming skillshares will be listed here).
