Your Climate Story

At Thinktank, Birmingham Science Museum we are looking for your stories about how you have changed your lifestyle in response to the Climate Crisis that we all are facing today.

Anything you can send us will help to support the second phase of our brand new Our Changing Planet gallery.

This half of the exhibition will be looking at solutions and simple steps we can all take to help tackle the Climate Crisis. We want to find out your great ideas – big and small - so we can shout about and share them with our visitors.

Have you changed what kind of food you buy and eat? The way you travel to school or work? Or even the kind of wrapping paper you use?!

We want to hear all the small or maybe large changes that you have made!

How do I tell my story?

Email us with a video or write a short paragraph about what change you have made, how you have achieved this change and why was this change is important to you.

  • For video entries, let us know in no more than a minute.
  • For written entries, let us know with a maximum of 100 words.

One more thing. Just before you send in your entry please add in your email:

  • If you are under 18, over 19 or over 50.
  • The first part of your postcode.

It is important you get permission from anyone shown in your images before sharing with us.
