Science & Films: The New Inspiration Couple?

A side event, ‘Science & Films: The New Inspiration Couple?’ was held at COP26 this month in Glasgow, UK, which explored how film, arts and creative communication can help tell the climate emergency story and inspire hope and action. Organised by the UNU Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS), UNCCD, the Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity, and UNFCCC, speakers discussed new ways of communicating climate science and policy to reach more people. Shinobu Yume Yamaguchi (Director, UNU-IAS) discussed the RCE Youth Climate Art Challenge, particularly how participants’ experiences creating artwork for the Challenge inspired them to think more deeply about the impacts they can make in their local communities.
