Unfortunately, the response rate on the survey of the use of storytelling in Scottish transition initiatives was extremely low: Only one person submitted a completed survey. However, this person did report that their initiative had used storytelling. Specifically she wrote that they had engaged in
“Collecting and sharing oral histories (recording stories told by elders about what their lives were like in the past)”
I’m not sure whether the low response rate means that Scottish initiatives are not yet using storytelling and so did not respond, or if having the survey included at the bottom of the Transition Scotland newsletter meant that people did not see it. So I cannot come to any conclusions. I still believe that storytelling is an important tool for changing culture towards greater sustainability.
