Members of IHME Helsinki’s Advisory Board are hosting a series of podcasts on the themes of Art, Science and Ecology. They discuss new approaches in art and in the lives of artists and art institutions responding to the environmental crisis. How can we raise awareness and activate our audiences, reduce our carbon emissions, create a more sustainable art world, and promote a cultural shift in which less is more?

IHME acknowledges that the climate crisis and loss of biodiversity are also crises for the art world, and that this alarming situation requires immediate changes in thinking and action. At the current rate of carbon-dioxide emissions humankind will have used up our carbon budget within seven years.

The podcast is produced in collaboration with Helsinki Open Waves.
