Within climate sciences, storylines, i.e., physically-based unfoldings of past climate or weather events, or of plausible future events or pathways, are increasingly used. However, the role of storytelling to enhance scientific evidence is only recently gaining scholarly attention. This webinar will focus on some of the building blocks of narrative in order to develop effective stories, as well as drawing upon literary examples of environmental change.


Dr Victoria Leslie is a Research Fellow at the University of Portsmouth working on the SMMR “Diverse Marine Values” project using a range of arts-based research methods. She is an English literature and creative writing scholar, the author of a short story collection and a novel, the recipient of two literary fellowships and a finalist for a number of international fiction prizes.


The Sustainable Management of UK Marine Resources (SMMR) Programme is funded by UKRI and addresses critical marine research gaps, which span a variety of disciplines, from natural capital to ocean literacy and systems-based management. The growing SMMR-Network offers regular Webinars and Trainings for the marine community, aiming at connecting science and policy to improve management of the UK marine environment.
