As we urgently move away from the systems that have brought us into the climate and ecological crisis, artists, scientists, policymakers, activists and designers are developing new ways of shaping our world. Centring the creativity and lived experiences of vulnerable communities, advocating for the rights of natural world, and shifting our cultures from short term consumption to long term perspectives is crucial to developing holistic and intersectional solutions to the climate and ecological crisis.
This toolkit section highlights some of the ways that artists are collaborating across sectors and silos to dream, innovate, reclaim alternative knowledges and cultivate regenerative systems across culture, legal frameworks, economics, material design, land use and public space.
