Julie’s Bicycle, a non-profit organisation which aims to mobilise arts and culture to take on the climate crisis, has just launched a free library of climate resources. The Creative Climate Justice Hub is a library of arts and culture-focused resources, case studies, and information on climate justice.
Founded by the music industry in 2007 and now working across the arts and culture, Julie’s Bicycle has partnered with over 2000 organisations in the UK and internationally. Combining cultural and environmental expertise, Julie’s Bicycle focuses on high-impact programmes and policy change to meet the climate crisis head-on.
The Hub connects climate with justice in the arts and culture, and celebrates those people and organisations inspiring action. It shows how artists and creatives are mobilising through action, creativity, connecting to communities and using their voices to champion change. It offers tools, ideas and examples of action at the intersections of racial justice, gender, decolonisation, extraction, land justice, the rights of nature, and environmental justice.
The Hub is a platform for vital, inclusive content about justice and fairness and why marginalised groups around the world are disproportionately impacted by the climate and environmental crisis. It includes a new 27 page Creative Climate Justice guide to some of the key issues; a new climate justice film series featuring 14 global voices working across arts and culture; and over 100 filterable resources.
Farah Ahmed, Climate Justice Lead, Julie’s Bicycle, said:
“The climate crisis is as much a social issue as it is scientific and it’s vital that to take action on climate change, we understand its root causes. With the Hub, our aim is to encourage a deeper, more inclusive conversation about climate and empower artists and creative practitioners from marginalised and frontline communities to take leadership in this space.”
The Creative Climate Justice Hub is a result of programmes we have delivered in partnership with Arts Council England, British Council, Paddington Development Trust, our own Creative Climate Leadership programme, and conversations with justice advocates and pioneers from all across the world.
