Climate change and cultural education, again
I’ve been so involved in projects to do with the web and digital culture lately, that the topic I consider to be the most important has been pushed to the background. It was seeing these two things recently that made me hear the ticking of the clock again: This simple site counting down from 100 months – which is how long we have to solve the problem and this warning from the DEFRA chief advisor that we need to plan for the devastating effects of a temperature increase by 4C. Then, I got all niggled at the news that Boris Johnson had cancelled some green projects. Last year I published an article called Cultural Education for a Changed Planet in the Art and Climate Change edition of the engage journal , which I recommend you get hold of as all the articles together make for an inspiring and important read. Here is my article on its own.
