What Sort of Story is Climate Change? Whitechapel Green Drinks
Green Drinks is a global network of informal meet ups for people who work in the environmental field. It's an organic, self-organising network and a great way for catching up with people you know and making new contacts.
Artsadmin and TippingPoint have come together to host Whitechapel Green Drinks- with an arts flavour. This take on Green Drinks is for anyone working the environmental field, especially artists, organisations and individuals interested in creative and artistic approaches to tackling green issues.
But there is no particular agenda – come along on your own or with friends of colleagues, swap ideas and opportunities and meet new people.
In November 2014, we’ll be looking at the stories we tell about climate, inspired by the recent publication Culture and Climate Change: Narratives, alongside some of the team involved in the book.
Climate change is a very tricky story: it is urgent and important but at the same time seen as boring, difficult and confusing. How can narratives of climate change be refreshed in ways that help society debate and act on what we know? Everyone with an angle on this timely topic is welcome to join for a drink and a chat.
Culture and Climate Change is available to download for free at: http://www.open.ac.uk/researchcentres/osrc/research/themes/mediating-change
