We understand the recent storms in Angus have been devastating  and we want to be  as respectful and sensitive as possible. The words below are by Kate (Hub Co-Ordinator) to explain a little more behind the reasons why we are inviting you to share your experiences, what we hope to achieve by doing this and what we'd like to do - all of which is guided by you , the Angus Community.

Angus was hit really hard by storms over the winter. The loss of lives, homes and livelihoods here is heart breaking.

This hub exists to support more people to understand and make practical changes that help them live better in a changing climate. I feel really deeply that part of this should be to listen to what people have been through and are still going through.


Why us?

These are deeply personal and varied experiences, so why is it for the climate hub to gather them? Maybe it’s not. On a practical level, I made documentaries for 10 years. I have the skills and kit to record and store sound and pictures. But I’m also happy to share my skills and support others to do this. If this is something you would like to do, get in touch.

At the Climate Hub, we try and bring things back to the practical. We cannot change what has happened, but we can offer a space to honour at least a tiny part of what our community has been through and is still going through. By sharing your experience in words and/or pictures, we can learn, understand and in a small way witness what happened together.


Why now?

In March I spent some time speaking to folk at the Flood Ready roadshow. People directly affected and involved said that gathering these experiences was useful to help others understand what happened and prepare for the future.


What happens to your material?

Everyone who shares their experience, pictures, words, whatever, will get to decide together how the material is used. We will be guided by you to use this material in ways that work for our communities in Angus and perhaps beyond. We have been offered a space at the Montrose LandxSea Film Festival to showcase some of this material. But these are your experiences, so we will only do what together you think is right.

Our commitment is to work with you and be guided by those involved to use this material in ways that work for our communities in Angus.



If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

If you have anything you would like us to consider then also please let us know
