An evening of imagining possible futures in light of climate change predictions.
A climate scenario is a collective act of imagining a possible future in systems involving both humans an nature. They have played a prominent role in climate research, policy and communication. However they tend to be dominated by the natural sciences and economics.
The Paris Agreement set a target of limiting average global temperature increases to 1.5°C. What does a climate scenario look like which takes this ambitious goal into consideration?
Join us for an evening dedicated to imaginative responses to Future Scenarios. Hear from the team who have developed the Climate Change in Residence programme and the four artists who embarked on the first experimental year-long networked residency on the topic of Future Scenarios. They are: Emma Critchley, Lena Dobrowolska, Teo Ormond-Skeaping and Zoë Svendsen.
You’ll be invited to consider a range of climate-changed futures and create your own best-case or worst-case future scenario.
