Dynamic daily poems that can be shared in gardens, via social media and on buildings, billboards, buses and train stations. Poetry has the power to unfold and enliven climate stories that connect us all and reveal the state of our planet's health; stories promote questions, contain conflict, show adaptation, resilience, and change, and look out for resolution - applicable to the climate crisis, and the ethos of COP26. The poems will demonstrate that no matter who we are, or where we are in the world, we can individually and collectively forge paths that will protect our environment and avoid planetary catastrophe. Twelve Days of Hope in Twelve Poems will capture the imagination of many, being shared with a diverse audience within and outwith the COP venue.
