Climate Conversations

Climate Conversations has been developed against the context of East Devon District Council’s commitment to Devon’s Climate Change Emergency declaration and Exeter University's declaration of an environment and climate emergency.

The aim is that through the lens of arts and culture, Climate Conversations can help us discover different perspectives and create new opportunities to help us understand and adapt to our changing planet.
