At this year’s festival, we will be talking about how storytelling can help in taking the core values of the Earth Charter forward around the world.

The 2017 Scottish International Storytelling Festival supports and offers three days of open table talks around the themes of the Earth Charter. The Earth Charter was developed after a worldwide dialogue on common goals and values for social justice, peace and sustainability.

Spanish storyteller and writer, Grian Cutanda, has made this short animation based on an Australian Aboriginal Creation Myth.
