Event Description

Picturing climate change (March 21, 2022) is an upcoming online symposium that explores ‘what is seen and unseen’ in climate change from the viewpoints of the visual arts and photography, community action, agro-forestry to climate monitoring from earth orbiting satellites and the International Space Station. Be prepared to see the world from the ground up and back through space.



Community engagement and multidisciplinary collaborations

A discussion around the 'Internet of Nature' will look at how to represent flora and create greater awareness for Nature care (

Ecology, land rehabilitation, and culture

What are the real stories from the ground about environmental change through people and photography? How can people better express what is happening to them? Ecology and land rehabilitation need a balance of culture and ecological knowledge to be co-presented in order to create real action. How can that work?

The solution <-> problem

Climate change disproportionately affects people in low-and middle-income contexts who have done the least to contribute to it. Yet often these communities do not have the information or the channels they need to share or make informed decisions about how to prepare for climate change. Can simple actions and picture tools help make a difference? Can sharing images and local knowledge lead to new ways to innovate?
