I recently heard about data stories from @renee, as a way to create a narrative story around a set of data and make it meaningful.

Does anyone have experience crafting a data story for their environmental data?
We're hoping to build some resources around how to create and use data stories for the research area review on air quality data. Thanks!

Don't know if this could be useful, but there are some great TED talks on the subject like this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=edAf1jx1wh8

Made an activity to outline some steps in data storytelling and collect more resources on it: https://publiclab.org/notes/bhamster/12-02-2021/create-a-data-story-to-communicate-environmental-data

Some great tips on designing data visualizations also came out of the Greenpeace data activist co-op, relayed here by @laurel_mire: Impactful Data Visualization at Any Scale
