The Climate Stories Project is a new online forum for sharing stories about personal and community responses to climate change. Some of the recorded climate stories will become the basis for composed and improvised music. Jason Davis, director of the Climate Stories Project, is interested in recording the stories of people affected by the California drought and who are making the connection with climate change. He's interested in recording interviews over Skype, or having people upload their story directly to the website www.climatestoriesproject.org.
