What is it?
The CLIMATE CREATIVES CHALLENGE is a series of design competitions, the aim of which is to help support new and novel approaches for communicating the impacts of climate change and the benefits of mitigation, adaptation and resilience.
Why was it created?
It’s creator, Ed Barsley, Founder of 'The Environmental Design Studio' (TEDS) said;
"Over lockdown, I was inspired by Grayson Perry’s Art Club and the incredible array of works that people created and shared. We want to unlock that same kind of creative energy, but channel it towards communicating climate related themes and these challenges are an opportunity to do just that. The aim is to get creative industries and people who wouldn’t normally consider a topic (relating to climate change), to convey it in a new and novel manner. It's fantastic to see the quality and wide range of entries and ideas that have emerged!"
