Devi Lockwood is a poet / touring cyclist / storyteller currently traveling the world by bicycle and by boat to collect 1,001 stories from people she meets about water and/or climate change.
Her journey began with the September 21, 2014 People's Climate March in NYC. To date she has collected over 500 stories (audio recordings) in the USA, Fiji, Tuvalu, New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Qatar. In November 2016 she will attend the COP22, the UN climate talks in Morocco, as a youth delegate with SustainUS.
Devi is currently developing a map-website where you can click on a point and listen to a story someone has told her from that place.
Devi's work has been published in The Guardian, Storyscape, BOAAT, Buzzfeed, Gulf Coast, and elsewhere.
In May 2014, Devi graduated Phi Beta Kappa, summa cum laude from Harvard University where she studied Folklore & Mythology, earned a Language Citation in Arabic, and rowed for the Radcliffe Varsity Lightweight Women's rowing team. She loves places where rivers meet the sea.
