How can we marshal our collective imagination to accelerate global transformations and move towards a sustainable way of life? How can we get beyond dystopian visions of climate chaos and focus on more positive, equitable, and community-led futures?

Join ASU's Climate Imagination Fellows, climate fiction authors from around the world, along with leading scholars and critics, to explore these questions and more at an event presented by the British Library and the Center for Science and the Imagination.


With roots in science fiction, climate fiction is now expanding across genres and styles, from poetry to thrillers and more experimental work. This vital area of contemporary fiction grapples with climate science, art, politics, and technology, seeking to reinvent the way we envisage tomorrow. At this special event, Climate Imagination Fellows Libia Brenda, Hannah Onoguwe, and Vandana Singh share stories that bring the future into the present. They will reflect on the essential role of storytelling in thinking through the consequences of our collective decisions and charting a path towards the futures we want to build together.

The event will also feature a special appearance by internationally renowned fiction author, critic, and scholar Amitav Ghosh, author of The Great Derangement: Climate Change and the Unthinkable.
