“I’M ON A MISSION TO… CHANGE HOW WE TALK ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.”
KRIS DE MEYER

Neuroscientist & Director of UCL Climate Action Unit (he/him)

Kris is a neuroscientist and director of the Climate Action Unit at University College London. He brings insights from neuroscience and psychology to how we tell stories about climate change, communicate about climate risk, and create opportunities for climate action. He trains journalists and communicators in how to tell stories of action, rather than stories of concern. With storytelling studio Fast Familiar and NESTA, he developed The Strategy Room, an interactive story scenario showing the positive future we can create by acting on climate change. In 2019, he gave a talk at TEDxLondon on ‘The genie of polarisation – how can we get it back in the bottle?’

My favourite TED talk:
How not to be ignorant about the world
