Climate change is the defining global challenge of our time. Rapid changes to the climate over the last years have already caused severe effects across human societies and natural systems everywhere. Reducing the drivers of climate change requires a substantial collective and individual effort and demands a transformation of our economy and our systems of production and consumption – from changing the ways we produce energy to how we consume goods and services.
To effect such a radical shift, build awareness around climate change and stimulate all social groups to become “Actors of Change”, we need to develop innovative ways of engaging them in this effort.
Α(rt)ction for Climate Change proposes a new innovative approach to fight climate change, which involves the influential power of visual arts. Specifically, it aims to enable behavior changes for individual preferences, consumption habits and lifestyle by training and educating young visual artists and youth workers on how they can capitalize on the influential power of arts and green entrepreneurship to contribute to a more sustainable future.
