Julie’s Bicycle mobilises the arts and culture to act on the climate, nature and justice crisis.
JB supports the arts and culture to:
- Become net zero carbon and restore nature.
- Inspire public action on climate and ecology.
- Champion environmental justice and fairness.
The climate crisis is a cultural crisis
To build a consensus for rapid action on climate change, a shift in cultural attitudes, narratives and practices is needed.
The power of culture
Arts and culture play a powerful role in our lives and can inspire audiences, shift hearts and minds and create new ways of living and working.
Science, data and expertise
We are guided by a deep respect for science, data, and expertise. Robust information and research underpin our work.
Justice and fairness
We recognise that the climate and biodiversity crisis has its roots in harmful systems and unfairly impacts those who have contributed least to its causes. JB champions climate justice and the imperative to embed justice and fairness into transformative action across the cultural community.
Climate action requires a fundamental commitment to care and good stewardship.
It takes everyone
The collective strength of the cultural community is a unified movement of action, encompassing many perspectives and voices, working towards a shared purpose.
