Hi, what are you looking for?

Energy

Have you witnessed the effects of climate change? Tell us about it.

Too often, climate change is reported in abstract or future-focused terms. These changes — whether economic, political, social, meteorological and climatic — are already happening everywhere, at all times, to all of us.

As part of our new Climate, Changed project, we want to hear from people across Europe who are bearing witness to changes around them, which you believe are brought about by the warming of the climate.

These might seem tiny — a different bird in the garden or a new plant growing where you walk the dog — or they could be as huge as the loss of a glacier or violent weather. They could also be directing us to a local initiative tackling the climate crisis, related to economic losses suffered as a result, or highlighting the impact of the energy transition on your community — for good or ill.

No matter the size, we want to hear your first-hand stories, alongside photos or videos. You don’t need to be sure about the climate link, as we will consult scientists and the most recent published work. Each month, we’ll publish a selection of these on our website to show how climate change is being experienced by Europeans.

To get in touch, use the form below, or you can reach us on WhatsApp or Signal via +32 479 72 16 65.

Note: If you would like to send us video footage, please do so via WhatsApp or Signal.
