Culture anchors people to places and to each other.
The immense power of arts, culture and heritage to drive climate action and support just transitions by communities towards low carbon, climate resilient pathways often goes untapped.
Cultural narratives including those drawing on art, music, heritage, and design have great power to enhance understanding within diverse audiences about climate change and the urgency of climate action.
Straddling science and technology and the political sphere lies the communal realm, a social world of remembering sharing and belonging that binds people to places and to each other. The Culture at COP website showcases the sometimes overlooked role that arts, culture and heritage play and achieving a climate resilient world. It highlights concrete culture based activities, many being implemented through new partnerships between cultural actors and stakeholders across sectors.
