Science and technology-led solutions play an important role in tackling climate change. However, science alone cannot resolve the problem, neither can policy, media or art-based approaches. This calls for a wider integration of knowledge.

Climate solutions with inspiration from arts

This workshop is open to policymakers, researchers, artists and media and communications experts. The aim is to gather experts from different fields to create new connections, exchange knowledge, and identify novel research questions and interdisciplinary climate solutions with inspiration from arts and science.


This workshop will be held in-person at SEI Headquarters. 50 places are available and registration closes on 17 April 9:00 (CET). The event is now closed for registration.

Art, Science and Policy Lab for new climate solutions

The Art, Science and Policy Lab is an interdisciplinary network that brings together experts from various fields, such as science, policy, arts, and media, with the goal of exploring diverse solutions to the ongoing climate crisis.

This project emerged as a result of the collaboration between SEI and Stockholm University in 2022, under the leadership of Somya Joshi and Ylva Rylander.
