Re-imagining Climate Change

Re-imagining Climate Change

Dorothea Born

Images and visualisations play an essential role in communicating climate change and create awareness. But what should climate change images look like? Should they depict catastrophic scenarios or utopic futures? And how should something be visualized where the most dire consequences still lie in the future and want to be prevented?

Instead of the mainstream iconography present in the media, we need a more diverse climate change imagery that is focused on specific target audiences. In this participatory, art-based workshop we will collectively re-imagine climate change visuals and together set a first step in creating new climate change iconographies. 

Dorothea Born wrote their PhD in Science and Technology Studies on visual climate change communication in popular science magazines. Currently they are coordinating the Action for Sustainable Future hub, an open innovation in science impact lab that supports transdisciplinary projects at the intersection of arts, science and society. Dorothea believes in the power of finding solutions for the transformation of society through participatory, action-oriented processes and thinks that the boundaries between science, society and arts should be redrawn.
