Climate Change Professionals, Entrepreneurs and guests are welcome to learn and share their experience in this exciting industry. We will discuss the role technology plays in Climate Change as we create a program which speaks directly to the questions of our community.
The WITI Climate Change Sustainability event is a monthly gathering that aims to promote awareness and discussion around climate change and sustainability issues. Each month, the event explores different topics related to these issues, with the goal of fostering a deeper understanding of the challenges we face and the solutions that are available.
This month's event will focus on the role of climate activist artists in modern art. The discussion will center around how artists are using their creativity to raise awareness about climate change, and to inspire action and change. Participants will explore the ways in which artists are using various mediums, such as painting, sculpture, installation art, and performance art, to convey their messages about the urgent need to address climate change.
During the event, attendees will have the opportunity to hear from experts in the field, including artists, curators, and art historians, who will share their perspectives on the importance of art in the fight against climate change. There will also be interactive activities and group discussions that encourage participants to share their own thoughts and ideas about the intersection of art and climate activism.
Overall, this month's WITI Climate Change Sustainability event promises to be an engaging and thought-provoking exploration of the power of art to drive change and raise awareness about one of the most pressing issues of our time.
This event occurs the first Wednesday of every month.
