ARTS + DESIGN & the Global Climate Action Summit: Reflections and Next Steps
September 24 | 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm
At the close of the Global Climate Action Summit, join UC Berkeley Arts + Design at the UC Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive to reflect on the climate challenges facing our world, and to discuss possible solutions and next steps our community, state, and nation can take to combat global climate change. Hear from UC Berkeley faculty, participants in the COAL + ICE exhibition, and a coterie of Bay Area climate artists as we collectively advance environmental awareness through research enterprises that join artists, designers, humanists, scientists, and policy makers. Together, we will think through new creative infrastructures that tell stories, build community, activate participants, and sensitize citizens to ecological issues.
Participants will include:
Shannon Jackson, Associate Vice Chancellor for the Arts and Design at UC Berkeley
Orville Schell, Arthur Ross Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations, Asia Society
Dan Kammen, Distinguished Professor of Energy in the Energy and Resources Group at UC Berkeley
