Climate Redesign: Collaborative Project
Posted in Events by Kate Archdeacon on July 13th, 2010
Climate Redesign 2010: An experimental collaborative project involving climate communicators and creatives to generate ideas on how to increase measurable mainstream support for action on climate change. We will be brainstorming together, sketching, modelling, drawing, writing, building briefs and testing ideas. We will be inspiring each other, having fun, sharing skills and forming working relationships with the people who will energise our ideas and implement them in the real world.
Public momentum on climate change action is stagnating, Copenhagen flopped and Rudd back-flipped on legislating a strong ETS. Meanwhile the issue is not going away and scientists are getting more alarmed with the scientific evidence. Australian groups have created the technical and economic solutions and now we need big creative ideas to inspire the Australian community and our leaders to implement these solutions. We are calling for Australia’s creatives to step up to this challenge and provide the ideas, skills and leadership that will transform the movement and catalyse real change. We want to abandon the stereotypes of past communications and actions to embrace the new, the clever, the dynamic and agile, the unexpected.
We are not aiming to produce campaign materials. We aim to produce the ideas and concepts that will lead to better campaign planning or a better alternative to a campaign altogether. We want to design frameworks for the Climate Communicators to allocate resources and ideas within their own organisations and to seek funding and support for implementation. All ideas and concepts produced will be shared and not be owned by anyone person. We will encourage remixing and upcycling of ideas between participants.
Participants will gain the following:
1. Work creatively in a fun environment
2. Extend working networks
3. Learn new ways of collaborating together
4. Contribute actively to the climate change issue
Saturday July 17, with an evening introduction in the week of the 5th.
