Climate Stories Ambassadors Project

Montgomery County Climate Stories Ambassadors are community leaders encouraging their fellow residents to contribute their “grain of sand,” forging the collective impact necessary to address the climate crisis. Their stories reflect observations of, and emotional responses to, the changing climate.  Underlying all their stories is a powerful and resilient determination to build a more positive future.  

We have collected over 100 stories thanks to County Climate Stories Ambassadors. We encourage you to listen to their lived experiences, wisdom and insights. For more stories, visit the Maryland Climate Stories page at Climate Stories Project and the Climate Stories Ambassadors YouTube Playlist.
