About We Hear You—A Climate Archive: We Hear You—A Climate Archive is a global performance project exploring youth perspectives on the climate emergency. Inspired by Greta Thunberg’s urgent question “Can you hear me?,” We Hear You seeks to amplify—and to record for future generations—the ways that young people today are experiencing changes in the fundamental forces of the earth. Between March 2022 and June 2023, the project commissioned 77 young people from around the world to share their climate stories. This April 25, Dramaten presents 77 Messages to the Future, a world premiere production inspired by these stories.

We Hear You—A Climate Archive is a collaboration between Dramaten (The Royal Dramatic Theatre of Sweden), The Earth Commons — Georgetown University’s Institute for Environment and Sustainability, The Embassy of Sweden in Washington, DC, and The Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics at Georgetown University. We Hear You is co-conceived by Caitlin Nasema Cassidy and Jacob Hirdwall. Additional support for this project is provided by the Swedish Arts Council and Barbro Osher Pro Suecia Foundation.
