Everything Change Climate Fiction Contest 2020

Arizona State University is announcing its third global climate fiction short story contest in 2020 which represents a momentous year for climate action, and an unprecedented opportunity to reimagine how humans will live on this planet in the future. This competition is looking for short stories that help imagine how humans can live within Earth’s planetary boundaries at the individual level, at the level of organizations, communities, and societies, and at the level of a global human civilization.

More Details

The presented work can cover the following questions:

  1. What would our world look like if humans actually respected and lived within planetary boundaries?
  2. How would we organize our homes, communities, cities, and nations?
  3. How would we live with and relate to each other at the global level?
  4. How might politics, culture, relationships, and identities change in a world where we’re grappling seriously with the climate crisis, and perhaps even trying to restore some of the damage humans have already done to the planet and its ecosystems?
  5. What kinds of obstacles, conflicts, and transformations will arise during these humongous shifts?
  6. How can we ensure that a sustainable or even climate-positive future is also a just and equitable one?
