What is OFOS?

Our Future, Our Story is a website for writing by Canadian youth about the climate crisis, climate justice, and climate action.

We publish fiction, journalism, poetry, essays, graphic stories, and video/audio of spoken word poetry.

OFOS was created in October 2019 by a group of students who met for two days at Mount Saint Vincent University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.

Over the two days, we discussed the climate crisis, shared our experiences, and practiced many forms of creative writing. Some of that writing is published here.

To submit your work to OFOS, see our submission guidelines.

The OFOS project was coordinated by Understorey Magazine and the Alexa McDonough Institute for Women, Gender and Social Justice. It is funded by these two organizations and by a grant from the Climate Action Fund of Environment and Climate Change Canada.
