The global climate is changing, and vulnerable communities worldwide suffer the consequences. Traditional disaster management approaches are not enough to deal with rising risks, and new forms of collaboration are needed to inspire people and organizations to link knowledge with action. The Red Cross/Red Crescent Climate Centre and the Balance-Unbalance international project have joined forces to develop the “art! x climate“ contests to produce sound-based art miniatures focusing on the global environmental crisis. This project use art as a catalyst not only to explore intersections between nature, science, technology, and society but also to provide a platform for reflection and debate to turn good intentions into actions.
