A new series of four podcasts onÂ Culture and Climate Change is now online atÂ iTunes U. The discussions bring together artists, writers, film-makers, scientists, academics and journalists with a comedian, a choreographer, a campaigner, and an entrepreneur.
TheÂ Mediating Change series is hosted by Quentin Cooper and contributors include Tim Smit, Marcus Brigstocke, Siobhan Davies (see pic), Roger Harrabin, Joe Smith and two of the Ashden Directory’s editors, Wallace Heim and Robert Butler.Â More details here.
The producer, Vicky Long, says:
Cultural activity in this area is gathering real momentum, with ‘Greenland’ opening at the National Theatre and ‘The Heretic’ opening at the Royal Court early next year. We feel itâ€™s vital a critical framework is developed alongside this emerging work.
This series represents a first sustained exploration of culture and climate change in a publicly-available broadcast-quality format.
