Creative Climate Justice: On Loss and Damage

February 1, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 12:15 pm

Join us for the second episode in our Creative Climate Justice series, to understand how cultural organisations can tackle climate justice, and embed responses in our work and creative practice. Our next discussion will cover Loss and Damage, a subject rising up the political agenda and a particularly hot topic at COP26.

The term is essentially about responding to climate change impacts that can’t be prevented or recovered (‘Losses’) as well as those that may be able to be restored (‘Damage’).

Countries are already experiencing Loss and Damage, and the most vulnerable people and places are suffering the biggest impacts. Those most affected are the least responsible for carbon emissions that are driving climate change. This brings the focus to climate justice – to calls for accountability from the richer to the poorer nations for loss and damage, to accept responsibility for historical emissions, provide technical support and compensate poorer nations for loss and damage now, and in the future.

We will hear from a policy experts and creative practitioners who can help us unpack this jargon and learn what it means for our creative climate action, and how we as a creative community can foster connection with the impacts of climate change overseas and at home in the UK.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Saleemul Huq, International Center for Climate Change and Development
  • Anna Santomauro, Arts Catalyst
  • More to be announced shortly…



This event is part of the Arts Council England Environmental Sustainability Programme. You can find the recording from episode one, an introduction to climate justice HERE.
