Storm Stories – Sharing Sessions!
An invitation to residents of the Outer Hebrides – help us connect your experiences with climate science!
We would love to hear your stories and experiences of winter storms and stormy weather. Tell us your observations, thoughts and how your local environment might be changing.
Join us to share your stories as we explore connections between local experiences of winter storms and Met Office climate change modelling.
Free, online events via Zoom:
Wednesday 23rd @ 8pm – English sharing event
Thursday 24th @ 8pm – Gaelic sharing event
Please note that each event is individual / stand alone and there is no requirement attend the events in order or to join more than one session.
Làn Thìde is embarking on an art project with Lewis based artist Sandra Kennedy which will combine local people’s lived experiences of stormy weather with Met Office analysis of how winter storms are likely to change in future. This will be developed into a climate Storyline for the Outer Hebrides, and used to help us thinking about climate change and how it will affect our islands and communities.
If you would like to share a story about any storms or stormy weather you have experienced in the Outer Hebrides, then we would love to hear from you!
If you work in fishing or crofting please contact us directly as we are particularly interested in hearing about your experience. If you would like to be involved but can’t make the online discussions, please contact us via the email below and we can set up and individual call or visit. If you prefer to share stories in Gaelic that would be most welcome -please let us know!
