The need for new stories based on another way of talking about and engaging with our planet - stories that helps us to achieve goals for a fossil-free society - has been a recurring argument in the social debate on sustainable transformations.

In this project, researchers, artists and preschools collaborate to jointly explore stories and perspectives on sustainability issues. The purpose of the project is to gain an increased understanding of how interactive theatre can be a tool for empowering young children’s creation of sustainability narratives.

Specifically, the project asks:

  • How do performers and young children jointly create, shape and circulate various sustainability narratives?
  • How can Theatre for Early Years, and in particular, interactive performance installations be designed to engage with an audience of under-5’s?
