The Question_2

Challenge #05
 

How can we communicate the impacts of HEATWAVES, and the benefits of adaptation / resilience?

 

The judges are looking for entrants to;

 

- Explore ways for communicating the topic that go beyond the traditional bounds / formats in which it's typically represented.

 

- Share 'place' based narratives that link to / showcase contextual stories and experiences.

- Consider how your entry to the challenge could connect with people and/or organisations that aren’t necessarily aware or engaged with this topic.

- Not just focus on the hazard, but also show actions that can be taken for adaptation and to change the consequences endured.
