Digital Storytelling is an initiative to create and distribute rich, interactive, informative, and inspiring stories told from new and unique human perspectives about the impact of U.S. foreign policy for foreign and domestic audiences.
Our goal is to communicate our policy priorities to audiences in ways that engage, resonate, and inspire, by applying the time-tested tenets of storytelling to today’s interactive technology. In late April, the Digital Lab launched two digital stories as part of the Digital Storytelling Pilot.
This interactive narrative that juxtaposes official Kremlin statements about the Russian invasion of Ukraine with images of the harsh reality on the ground created shockwaves on social media when it was shared with the public.
This digital story is also available in Russian.
In this digital story, produced in partnership with GPA Content (GPA/CN), you’ll meet two people on the front lines of the green jobs revolution — Tim, a construction foreman from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and Sandra, a renewable energy specialist from Bogotá, Colombia. Despite the miles that separate them, Tim and Sandra and the communities they represent share much in common.
This digital story is also available in Spanish.
