An evening of imagining possible futures in light of climate change predictions.
Venue: Toynbee Studios
28 Commercial Street
A climate scenario is a collective act of imagining a possible future in systems involving both humans and nature. They have played a prominent role in climate research, policy and communication. However they tend to be dominated by the natural sciences and economics.
The Paris Agreement set a target of limiting average global temperature increases to 1.5°C. What does a climate scenario look like which takes this ambitious goal into consideration?
The evening was dedicated to imaginative responses to Future Scenarios. The audience hear from the team who developed the Climate Change in Residence programme and the four artists who embarked on the first experimental year-long networked residency on the topic of Future Scenarios. They were: Emma Critchley, Lena Dobrowolska, Teo Ormond-Skeaping and Zoë Svendsen.
The audience was invited to consider a range of climate-changed futures and to create their own best-case or worst-case future scenario.
