Acclimatize. Today, 10 October, we launch Acclimatize – a global and digital exhibition with a focus on the climate. At Acclimatize everyone can offer their own perspective on climate change. Even before the launch, Acclimatize has had an enthusiastic response. The contributors include established artists like Isaac Julien and Olafur Eliasson, along with Johan Rockström, professor of environmental sciences, Bea Szenfeld, designer, and the kids at the Plantan nursery school in Uppsala.
“The existential and cultural aspects of the climate crisis are just as crucial as the technical and scientific sides. We believe that creativity can change the world. Therefore, we are inviting everyone around the globe to create a think tank to promote commitment to climate issues. The UN has declared sustainability goals for 2030, and with Acclimatize we can inspire each other to take steps together towards a sustainable future,” says Ylva Hillström, initiator of Acclimatize.
On the Acclimatize website anyone can publish and share works about climate change and sustainability. It could be a picture, a film, a dialogue, a dance, a poem, or something else. Isaac Julien, Olafur Eliasson and Bea Szenfeld have already uploaded films to Acclimatize, in which they talk about creativity and the climate. Matilda Tham, design researcher, Pelle Boberg, officer at the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency, and Supermiljöbloggen have contributed exciting and informative texts on various perspectives on climate change, sustainability and creativity.
Contributions to Acclimatize can be uploaded from 10 October to 10 December, 2016.
The website is in English only.
