U project to be featured at Climate Change Conference

This week a project created by a group of University of Utah faculty and collaborators will be featured at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) in Glasgow, Scotland.

Artivism for Earth was created to inspire compassionate and creative actions to the climate crises. The project, funded by a 1U4U grant, asks questions that stir powerful emotions: How will we adapt to create a more resilient planet for humans and nature? How will we protect communities that are disadvantaged and most at risk? What kind of future do we want to leave for the next generation?

Now, Artivism for Earth will be featured as part of the Music 4 Climate Justice Virtual Global Benefit Concert as a groundbreaking, innovative way of bridging divides in climate change communication.

Catch Artivism for Earth’s feature on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 12 p.m. MST by registering at music4climatejustice.org for free access.

Samples of Artivism for Earth will be featured, most notably the University of Utah interdisciplinary collaboration on air quality and an interview with co-directors Elisabet Curbelo and Hasse Borup.
