Event Details

Picturing climate change (March 21, 2022) is an online symposium that explores ‘what is seen and unseen’ in climate change from the viewpoints of the visual arts and photography, community action, agro-forestry to climate monitoring from earth to orbiting satellites

Community engagement and multidisciplinary collaborations

Climate conversations and actions are now involving a wide spectrum of practitioners from a variety of fields, including researchers, horticulturalists, astrophysicists, engineers, planners, activists, artists, citizens and school children, to name a few. How have multidisciplinary arts collaborations local to Dundee and Glasgow, Scotland, for instance, successfully changed how we perceive climate challenges with immediate and international communities?

Researchers say emotion and imagination are urgently needed to reach people in ways information alone cannot

Ecology, land rehabilitation, and culture
What are the real stories from the ground about environmental change? How can people better express what is happening to them? Ecology and land rehabilitation need a balance of culture and ecological knowledge to be co-presented in order to create real action. How can that work for communities, park wardens, private landowners to civic and national governments?

The solution problem

Activate and co-support knowledge stakeholders
Climate change disproportionately affects people who do not have the information or the channels they need to share or make informed decisions about how to prepare for climate change. Can simple actions and tools help make a difference? Can sharing examples and local knowledge lead to new ways to innovate? Learn what steps can create resilience that matter to people on the ground
