Adapting Together Symposium Film
Adapting Together: How can we all play a part in climate action?’ was a symposium for equitable climate action at Lancaster University in a collaboration between ImaginationLancaster – Lancaster University’s design-led research lab – and Future Observatory – a national programme for design research supporting the UK’s response to the climate crisis at the Design Museum.
With case studies from Lancashire, London, Birmingham and Bristol – spanning e-waste and repair, community housing, civic placemaking and grass-roots, collective action – and inviting expert, local responses to those case studies, we asked how we might respond equitably to the climate crisis. The symposium film asks the speakers to ask why equity matters when it comes to climate action and presents examples of design research, environmental and community led, collective action across the UK.
