A futuristic take on race, gender and immigration. Close your eyes and imagine a better future beyond the current climate crisis. What do you see? This is exactly what Grist’s solutions lab, Fix, asked writers from all over the world to do for its first climate-fiction short story contest, "Imagine 2200: Climate Fiction for Future Ancestors". We're excited to present to you the three winning stories in audio. The stories offer a refreshing flicker of hope, even joy, by providing a springboard for exploring how fiction can help create a path towards equitable climate progress, envisaging intersectional worlds of abundance, adaptation and reform. In Tidings — written by Rich Larson — we find a collection of non-linear vignettes loosely connected by the same themes. Travel not only into this fascinating, vividly described version of the future but all around the world, from Niger to Czezchia and all the way to Thailand. It is read by Audie Award finalist, Sean Crisden.
