A new approach to the planet and all of its species requires the application of a broad spectrum of knowledge. Can interdisciplinary cooperations produce ground-breaking solutions in the field of climate care?

At this conference, international players from the realms of architecture, art, design, the environment and economics form four panels to discuss our collective responsibility to halt, or at least mitigate, climate change: Eat Love, Circular Society, Land Matters and Natural Technology. With keynote speeches by the internationally acclaimed architect Anna Heringer and the geographer and environmental social scientist Holly Jean Buck.

The conference programme is compiled by the partner institutions of the VIENNA BIENNALE FOR CHANGE working together.
