The “Imagining Climate Change” initiative at the University of Florida engages artists, humanists, scientists, educators, students, and the public in the vital work of imagining our collective climate futures. A winner of UF’s “Champions for Change” Award for its “contributions to campus life in the areas of sustainability, health, and well-being,” the initiative’s first year was profiled in this 2016 story in UF’s Explore magazine.
Since 2015, ICC has sponsored or co-sponsored colloquia, invited lectures, performances, readings, and film screenings on the UF campus and in the wider Gainesville community, featuring internationally-renowned activists, creators, researchers, and scholars who represent the full range of inventive responses to planetary environmental crisis. Working in collaboration with departments and programs from across the institution and with local community groups and activists, the initiative has fostered interdisciplinary dialogue and reached audiences beyond the university who are in search of meaningful stories to tell and things to do in the face of climate calamity.
