About the Creative Climate Leadership Program

Between 2021 and 2022 two leadership programmes took place with pioneering arts and cultural practitioners at the forefront of climate action. Centred around climate justice, 50 of Scandinavia’s creative change-makers came together to explore leadership, justice and sustainable practice in the context of a rapidly diminishing opportunity to keep temperatures below 1.5 degrees of warming. Culture – the arts, heritage and creative industries – has been missing from climate and justice solutions at all levels. This in spite of a growing global mobilisation of culture on climate. Julie’s Bicycle, Diego Galafassi and funded by Svenska Postkodstiftelsen hosted two Creative Climate leadership programmes. This event will celebrate the CCL alumni through showcase, performance and conversations at Sigtuna Stiftelsen. With speakers from art, science and policy we will explore what needs to change so culture can help meet the Scandinavian regions’ commitment to a safe, just world as set out in the IPCC 6th assessment report.
