In this webinar, Jacob Teglgaard, Lisbeth Burian and Elin Már Øyen Vister will look at the complexity of sustainability in a world of an escalating climate crisis.
What can we as artists do to minimize our climate footprint, how can we inspire the institutions we work with, the state, the private companies and the public, and how can we encourage behavioral change in everything we do?

We aim that the webinar will provide you with ideas and tips on how to work green while continuing your artistic practice.
