The “Imagining Climate Change” initiative at the University of Florida engages scientists, humanists, artists, educators, 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 is profiled in this recent story in UF’s Explore magazine.
In 2015 and 2016, ICC brought award-winning and influential African, American, Caribbean, and French science fiction authors, filmmakers, and climate scientists to UF to explore new ways of representing and responding to environmental change. Original short films by a team of UF undergraduates, incorporating interviews with the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Colloquia speakers, and streaming video of the Spring 2016 ICC Roundtable event, are available here.
ICC continues in 2016 and 2017 with a new schedule of film screenings, lectures, readings, and roundtables by invited speakers, UF faculty, and UF students, representing the range of creative, scientific, and scholarly responses to one of the most pressing global crises of our time. Streaming video of selected Spring 2017 ICC events is available here.
All ICC events are free and open to the public. No advance registration is required.
