Julie’s Bicycle mobilises the arts and culture to act on the climate and ecological 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 the 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 underpins our work.
Justice and fairness
JB champions climate justice across the cultural community. We recognise that the climate and ecological crisis has its roots in harmful systems and unfairly impacts those who have contributed least to its causes.
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, our community stretches the boundaries of what’s possible.
