For this research, they delved deeply into energy, water, land, waste, toxic pollution, and climate resilience and adaptation. Across the board, Helicon heard about five things that environmental sector leaders believe we need to do in order to secure a sustainable future:
- Spark public demand
- Build community capacity and agency
- Bridge scales
- Enrich and activate the built environment
- Nurture sustainable economies
This report explores how arts and cultural approaches amplify and accelerate progress in these five areas, and shares examples of bright spots doing this work.
