From Rio to COP21, what has been the impact of the cultural industry on societal transformation? How has it changed over time, and in particular, how were artists involved and included by policy makers? The opening of the Summit of Creatives is an opportunity to review the involvement of the cultural industry and inspire artists to get involved and put culture on the agenda of the negotiations.

Moderated by the ArtCOP21 team.
Dr. Rosenzwig will give the scientific frame of the Opening by sharing her voice as a climatologist on climate issues but also on the negotiations. She will also speak extensively about her vision on why culture and the arts are so important to tackle climate challenge, to make climate issue visible and sensitive aside from the negotiation
