Using Stories Before Stats: How to Engage with Climate Tech
Most climate tech companies that have been around for more than a few years have deep roots in engineering or at least some technical discipline. It makes sense, as a whole we are trying to address complicated problems that require complicated solutions, but at this stage in the energy transition we can no longer rely on “facts speaking for themselves”.
Curious, but often unfamiliar, audiences that we need to participate are being confused or out right repelled by technical messaging. We need more to share more relatable stories to build our workforce, win over decision makers, and drive policy change that depends on non-technical people.
