Creative Cimate Leadership EUROPE 2016-2019 – Training professionals for the ecological transition

Creative Cimate Leadership EUROPE 2016-2019 – Training professionals for the ecological transition

Creative Climate Leadership, our European cooperation program in Las Naves, in the framework of the annual plenary of IETM, Carrer de Juan Verdeguer 16, 46024 – Valencia, Spain.

What are the cultural dimensions of climate change?
Speaker: Alison Tickell of Julie’s Bicycle

Artists and cultural actors have a unique role in society – we operate both within and beyond the systems that shape our lives. We are dealing with the art of the possible and influencing new ways of being, doing and thinking. Today’s human societies have never needed these qualities more.

Creative Climate Leadership is a program designed to empower cultural professionals to take action and participate in the climate challenge through creativity. Its goal is to support the development of local and international best practices, new skills and discourses, and to change public policies.

Creative Climate Leadership is the result of a new partnership between eight European structures: Julie’s Bicycle (England), COAL (France), On The Move (Belgium), KRUG (Montenegro), EXIT Festival (Serbia), ARS BALTICA (Germany), PINA (Slovenia), MITOS21 (Denmark). It is financially supported by Creative Europe.
