Across the world, people, places, cultures, and ways of living are at risk due to the effects of climate change. Yet, there is another side to this story: the role of culture as a resource for navigating the climate crisis and building a sustainable future. Culture is both an enabler and a driver of the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development. But most importantly, it is a common good contributing to the creation of equal, diverse, and supportive societies.
How are cultural leaders and artists breaking down political, communication, and socio-economic barriers to tackle the climate crisis? Come and join us for the second Sustainability Accelerator Speakeasy for an evening conversation on climate art and the power of culture. Food and drinks will be provided.
