Climate Change art helps people connect with a challenging topic

Several researchers have looked into the role of art in climate change communication. Earlier this year, Laura Kim Sommer and Christian Andreas Kl√∂ckner published a paper suggesting that climate change art is capable of changing people’s opinions, as long as the message is hopeful, and gives people ideas for change. They based this on an analysis of artworks that were on display during the 2015 United Nations climate change negotiations (COP21) in Paris.

Art allows for a way for people to connect more directly with these emotional and personal aspects of climate change, but can also connect to the scientific facts. It can bridge that communication barrier.
