- This event has passed.
We have so far spoken about four of our five project dimensions – “we walk”, “we listen” (research), “we talk” (education), “we create” (media-art) -, but not explicitly about mobilizing and getting people together for a common cause! For what we term “connActing” people, that is bringing people together through an emancipatory agenda, we need two particular things.
First, we need to be able to reach an audience, to communicate Climate Change and the Climate Crisis. For dealing with this issue, we have invited two speakers elaborating on the issue of how to communicate the Climate Crisis in a meaningful way. The second part of this class is dedicated to speakers sketching out approaches for overcoming and dealing with the Climate Crisis. Here, we will talk about prospects of aocio-ecological transformation, about what makes the imperial mode of living so persisent, and about how to fight for of a good life for all.

The Climate Walk is a combined research, education and media-art project by the Wanderers of Changing Worlds. It is about walking across Europe to understand regional experiences of Climate Change. It is about listening to local perspectives, learning from them and connecting these stories together to construct a holistic, people-centric understanding of these complex phenomena.
