Europe is at risk – adapting to extremes

Climate change is considered by many to be the challenge of the 21st century. The urgency and severity of this challenge call for integrated ways of looking at responses to reduce the risks associated with environmental and social stressors, and ensure a secure future for humans and ecosystems. A cooperative approach allows us to improve learning and knowledge exchange in order to deliver optimal solutions. This is particularly important in relation to the goals and targets of the three major international agreements: Paris, Sendai Framework for DRR and the Sustainable Development Goals.

13:00–14:00 Exhibition opening

Art For Change | students of Antonio Arroio Art School, Lisbon

Corridor, Small Auditorium and terrace

​The exhibition is result of a collaboration between the Artistic Secondary School Antonio Arroio, Lisbon and project Art For Adaptation. Around 80 students of 11th and 12th grade were involved in this collaboration ranging from art production to curation and communication. The students were engaged in the topic of climate change through transformative learning approaches and learned about climate change by approaching change as an experiment and through climate fiction.
