CABE, the Commission for Architecture and the Built Environment, are partnering with Bham City Council for what is apparently “the world’s first climate change festival” between 31 May and 8 June.
They’re promising “no guilt and no finger wagging. This will be collective, dramatic and fun”. CABE’s thinking is that the environmental crisis is largely a planning and design crisis and so the festival will explore how cities are planned, designed and used.
Over to the organisers:
Over nine days, the Climate Change Festival will help you see your city with new eyes. Exhibitions and debates, clay modelling, parkour (free running), street theatre, ideas and fun for anyone aged 9-90. Come along!
You can check out the Climate Change Festival website or thrill to the Council’s own brand of wild enthusiasm but all the action seems to be on Facebook so far. CABE have a fair amount of info too but there are no listings yet (that I can find).
