Bracing for Impact
In the summer of 2014, a team of six of us set out to raise $25,000 on the journalism crowd-funding platform, Beacon, to pursue a nine-month-long, in-depth reporting project focused on climate change. Our team name was Flux, and our project was called Bracing for Impact. We sought to tell complex and nuanced stories about the ways that societies and ecosystems are shifting in the face of climate change. Thanks to our supporters, we raised more than $27,000 and produced 27 originally reported stories on nature, culture, science, resilience and weakness in a changing world. Some stories were reported close to home, while others took us to far-flung locations around the globe.
