Climate Change and the Arts: A Post-Cop26 Roundtable Discussion
Much of the discourse surrounding the recent Cop26 meeting in Glasgow has been led by the political and scientific communities and has been focused on progressing international agreements and multilateral policies in order to address the planetary urgency of the climate and biodiversity crises. However, if cultural vitality (in its broadest sense) is recognised as the fourth pillar of sustainability then any policy initiatives in relation to environmental change that fail to take into account the importance of the social-cultural realm will possibly only have very limited success in the future.

This webinar seeks to address this important gap in policy and public discourse in relation to the role that the arts (and culture more widely) can play in addressing these environmental and planetary challenges, in Ireland and globally today. In particular, the webinar will foreground the role of arts practitioners and those directly working the area of Arts and Humanities in this discussion and so we are delighted to have a wide range of artists, writers, scholars, practitioners, curators, and those involved in sustainability policy participating in our panel discussion.

This event is co-hosted by Future Earth Ireland, based at the Royal Irish Academy, and the Moore Institute for the Humanities and Social Studies at NUI Galway.
