Science and Art in a Climate of Change: A Dialogue of Nations
Watch footage of the event co-sponsored by the UCLA Center for Intercultural Performance & Institute of the Environment and Sustainability.
Deep in the Pacific, the island nations of Kiribati, Tokelau, and Tuvalu are among the first to feel the direct affects of climate change as they submerge under rising sea levels. In a unique exchange of ideas and artistic expression, islanders, climate change experts, and political leaders explore the very real threats to islands across the South Pacific, the "canaries in the coal mine" of climate change. This panel presentation and live performance was part of the UCLA Department of World Arts and Cultures/Dance's Artist Alphabet Series.
