When the arts address climate change
Public opinion on global warming is a hot topic. While most Europeans support protecting the environment, there's a big divide on the issue. Understanding public perception on environmental issues is key to ensuring sustainability and recommending policies. The EU-funded CreaTures project has identified collaboration, reflection and direct engagement as the main factors determining the public's orientation on environmental issues. The project will develop a transdisciplinary, evidence-based framework that highlights the strengths and opportunities for the arts to address climate change. It will also work around three interconnected activities: an observatory (identifying and mapping existing creative practices), a laboratory (for new experimentation), and evaluation (testing new and existing creative practices). Overall, the project's goal is to demonstrate paths to achieving sustainability.
