Poetry & Climate Change

cape_farewell_webSince 2013, the Poetry Society has been working with Cape Farewell, an international not-for-profit organisation set up to instigate a cultural response to climate change.  Together we have created the Switch: Youth Poetics programme, which has resulted in some remarkable poetry from young writers, and a number of short films.

Our Young Poets Network are central to the collaboration with Cape Farewell – you can try out some of the poetry challenges on the YPN website, if you would like to attempt your own poems relating to climate change.
