Culture and
Climate Change


Culture and Climate Change has initiated and supported a series of public discussions, workshops, seminars, installations and exhibitions. These have brought together researchers, artists, producers and media people working on global environmental change issues. We have communicated the insights from Culture and Climate Change research projects to a wider public through freely accessible print and web publications, exhibitions, e-books and podcasts. All of our activities have sought to break new ground on these important topics. This page lists Culture and Climate Change activities and also those of people and institutions in our network with related projects.
