#PathwaysToClimate | Artist Anne de Carbuccia ( @annedecarbuccia ) travels the world installing temporary shrines that she preserves with her camera, eternizing the spaces where climate change poses threats to water, species, environments, and cultures. Through this practice, de Carbuccia aims to “draw attention to the current environmental crisis and to move people to change behaviors and habits that contribute to it.” The compilation of photographs, “One Planet One Future,” ( @oneplanetonefuture ) serves as a record of what we have, but also what we have to lose if we do not act on climate change. Anne travels the world to capture these powerful images—this series takes us from the Grenadines to the Himalayas, and Cambodia to Standing Rock. Swipe through to see a photograph from each category in order as listed. - 48th in the series #PathwaysToClimate , in which we are working with creators across a range of media to highlight the diversity and scope of artistic responses to climate change.

After a small tributary stream was destroyed during construction of a school, @crcompact led the students in re-establishing the small channel and salamander habitat. They noticed eggs in late spring and the other fauna that are precursors to healthy salamander populations. Then one day - full-grown salamanders! As #climatechange threatens more tributaries like this one, @crcompact is working to increase climate resilience in Mill Creek through rain gardens, pervious pavement, constructed wetlands, riparian buffers, and more!

“What keeps me awake and motivated and strong to do what I'm doing is my work mitigating air pollution and carbon dioxide emissions from the industrial and transportation sectors in Kenya. If the objective of the solution that I've put together to sort out this challenge is met, I believe there will be less air complications and fatalities from air pollution. By extension, we will launch sustainable growth, and there's generational equity in that our future generations will find a better planet with resources and an environment that is conducive for them.” —Jeremiah Lemi Muia ’18, Carbofix East Africa #echoinggreen #egfellows #climate #climatejustice #leaders #socialinnovation #carbon #kenya #airpollution #climatesolutions

TOMORROW — The Confluence Climate Collaborative Presents: Normal Is Over. Normal Is Over (103’ min) is a compelling and visually rich documentary directed by investigative TV-journalist Renée Scheltema. Her award-winning film is about humanity’s wisest response to climate change, species extinction, the depletion of critical natural resources, income inequlity and industrial control of our food production. This unique documentary examines how our economic and financial system connects all these issues, and offers solutions, which could be implemented immediately, from practical everyday fixes to rethinking the overarching myths of our time. Renée takes off on a multinational voyage, meeting not only prominent experts, but also everyday citizens who concentrate on matters such as organic agriculture, the banning of plastic, saving species, ecological economics, sustainable architecture, renewable energy, and more. While this film is intended to challenge viewers on many different levels, it most of all offers hope. Got your tickets yet?

#PathwaysToClimate | The human impact on the environment is becoming more and more evident, from global warming to the diminishment of resources. In “Human Effect,” an interactive public artwork created by Yandell Walton ( @yandellw ) in collaboration with animator Tobias Edwards and software developer Jayson Haebich ( @laserjayson ), Walton repurposed an urban landscape to give viewers an interactive experience representing the impact humans have on the earth and the power of our actions. The projected landscape shows vines and plants that grow, only to die whenever someone approaches. If the viewer moves away, the plants are reborn, showing that positive actions can yield positive and powerful outcomes. “Human Effect” was part of CLIMARTE’s ( @climarteaus ) ART+CLIMATE=CHANGE 2017, a major festival in Australia dedicated to harnessing the power of art to inspire action on climate change. - 47th in the series #PathwaysToClimate , in which we are working with creators across a range of media to highlight the diversity and scope of artistic responses to climate change.

Second installment of New Years solutions inspired by @bbcradio4. Flying is SUCH a difficult one 😣 Thinking about never flying again to most people including me is almost impossible, nevermind the impact of job losses etc in the aviation industry. However the crazy carbon emissions for flying are undeniable and something we shouldn’t bury our head in the sand about ✈️ Technology is not developing fast enough for electric planes to go mainstream any time soon, so the only way to tackle it is fly less. Have you considered flying less to reduce your carbon footprint? 👣

6. Causes I care about: Reforestation is one of the most important things for me because rainforests are integral to our daily lives as they provide 20% of all freshwater and 20% of the worlds' oxygen. Hence I support projects like @ecosia , @coolearthaction and @worldbank that involve planting trees where they are needed the most by working alongside (rain)forest communities to protect both the people and the forest. As much as I care for international causes I care for projects like Little Green Space (www.littlegreenspace.org.uk) which increase plant diversity and species richness (wildflower meadows) which in turn help insects like bees and many other animals on a local, regional and national level. Likewise, I care for increasing the number of road verges because they provide valuable habitats for plants, insects, birds, bats and many other due to the species richness and diversity. @plantlife.loveplants has started a campaign exactly for this purpose. #MeetTheChangeMakerChallenge #ethicalhour #ecofriendly #afforestation #reforestation #rainforests #forests #conservation #roadverges #wildflowers #plantdiversity #wildflowermeadows #trees #plantatree #climatesolutions

“Climate change is really all about kids’ health.” Gina McCarthy, former @EPAgov administrator, says that too few conversations about climate change emphasize the immediate health benefits that come with climate action. For example, switching to renewable energy can reduce carbon pollution and reduce smog, which triggers asthma attacks in children. Understanding how climate solutions can improve the health of children may motivate more people to act. .

#PathwaysToClimate | Katherine Wolkoff’s ( @kwolkoff ) “The Critical Zone” is a collection of black and white photographs showing millions of years of geologic change, including evidence of sliding glaciers and traces of disappeared oceans. The title of the exhibition refers to earth’s permeable layer, which extends from the tops of the trees to the bottom of the groundwater—where air, earth, water, and soil meet. Today, this zone is being affected by rising temperatures and climate change, and is studied as an indicator for the present and future of Earth’s environmental health. “The Critical Zone” will be presented at New York City’s Benrubi Gallery ( @benrubi_gallery ) January 10-March 2, 2019. — 46th in the series #PathwaysToClimate , in which we are working with creators across a range of media to highlight the diversity and scope of artistic responses to climate change.

#FollowUsNow @ateliermeld Here another # climatewarrior: Michel Blazy shows a preference for materials and objects issued from the industrial circuit as well as for living organisms. His metamorphic, hazardous and unpredictable artworks which reunite artificiality and nature prove that no matter can possibly be inert. Emphasizing the passing of time, the artist criticizes nowadays consumerism through a poetic and sometimes humoristic language. Michel Blazy works with unconventional materials taken from everyday life: plastic cups, paper towels, food coloring, household cleaning products, etc. He offers substitutes to reconcile artificiality and nature, the world of technology and the universe of living creatures, focusing on unforeseeable processes in opposition to our culture’s obsession for control. His works thus become a metaphor of fragility, passing time and the brevity of life. In Fontaine de mousse, the sinuous coils of white foam emerge from plastictrash bins in an on-going transformation, emphasizing the overpowering and unpredictable nature of matter in constant change. The resulted columns become ephemeral monuments stretching to infinity, that could bring to one’s mind the transcendence character of Constantin Brâncuși’s Endless column.

To kick off 2019, we'll be sharing one climate adaptation solution every week from our 14 Solutions report (found on our website). Today's is Solution 1: Restore the natural water storage capacity of ecosystems. One method is to reintroduce beaver. As they build dams, they create stream meanders and activate side channels, slow runoff, increase riparian habitat and store water above and below ground. These changes help to offset declines in water storage in high elevation snowpack and extend runoff to the warmest months when it is needed the most! How can you apply this to your work? 📷: Dean Fikar
