Climate justice activists are starting to adopt art (and more generally, creative expressions) as a tool to advocate for policy change and to communicate key climate justice messages. This is why Hivos – under its Voices for Just Climate Action (VCA) program – commissioned a study to learn more about the power of art. In particular, how it can be used in climate justice advocacy to mobilize and strengthen the climate justice movement through inclusivity, creativity and innovation.
The study, carried out by Profundo, maps out the multiple ways in which art can function as a medium to advocate for climate justice. It also presents ten case studies and concludes with opportunities, challenges and recommendations to foster “artivism” for climate justice.
