Chairs Present Series: Art & Design in the Face of Climate Change

On the 20th November Lucy Orta will be in conversation with Loïc Fel – Doctor in Philosophy, La Sorbone, David Buckland from Cape Farewell and Ackroyd & Harvey Artists discussing how art and design can contribute to the society in face of climate change.

In December 2015, thousands of civilian activists, climate based foundations and NGO’s will descend on Paris for COP21 – the 21st United Nations conference of climate change. The agenda of COP21 is primarily scientific and political, the question is will they achieve the necessary global agreements that will address the seriousness of the climate challenge? Through shared activity and excitement generated by art & design it is possible to make a creative, clean and sustainable future society a reality

This event is part of the UAL Chairs Present Series, it’s FREE and open to staff, students and the general public – please book here.
