In 2021, a series of digital Culture and Environment Roundtables were held in four countries: Turkey, Indonesia, Colombia and Nigeria, plus a final event in Milan to tie the findings together.
Participants from environmental and cultural fields came together – including policy-makers, municipalities, artists and cultural organisations – to explore how culture, and cultural policy specifically, is responding to the climate crisis.
Each Roundtable was held under amended Chatham House Rule, but the findings were collated into four summary reports.
In spite of different cultural contexts, many of the themes and insights were shared.
Julie’s Bicycle convened the Roundtables, alongside four in-country organisations, in partnership with The British Council for The Climate Connection, a global programme for dialogue, cooperation and action against climate change, in the lead up to the United Nations climate conference, COP26.
Thanks to all of our partners, participants, speakers, technical and events teams, and visual minute-takers. Thanks, too, to the British Council teams around the world.
