We are a small but rapidly growing collaboration of writers, artists, climate experts, and entrepreneurs tackling climate change one story at a time. Good Energy is a nonprofit whose mission is to inspire, support, and accelerate climate representation and stories in scripted entertainment, catalyzing action through narrative change. From 2016–20, only 2.8% of Hollywood’s scripted film and TV touched on climate—but Good Energy aims to make that number 50% by 2027.
Our flagship product is the Good Energy Playbook. Launched in April 2022, the Playbook garnered tremendous interest, with write-ups in The Hollywood Reporter, Variety, Entertainment Weekly, the Associated Press, CNN, Time, and more. Now, we’re developing and launching screenwriting workshops and a consulting program, along with other initiatives, to train and support screenwriters and industry leaders who want to talk about climate and illuminate the intersectionality of the climate crisis.
We are now working to build a sustainable organization, capable of responding to this momentum and enormous opportunity.
