Art and science working together

Victoria University School of Geography, Environment and Earth Sciences Professor James Renwick gives a brief rundown of climate change at an event in Dunedin yesterday.

Climate scientists joined artists in the first event of a national roadshow across New Zealand focusing on how the arts can play a role in getting people to respond to climate change.

The Arts and Climate Innovation Roadshow was organised by charity Track Zero in partnership with the Royal Society Te Aparangi and will stop at 10 locations around New Zealand.

Last night’s event at the Dunedin Fringe Festival office discussed the role of arts in climate change, what more could be done and what support was needed.
