From narratives on climate aggregators in the world’s largest cities, to sweeping aerial shots of storm ravaged towns, visual storytelling has a profound ability to affect the way we view climate change. Can visual arts cut through the politics and rhetoric to engage the public and galvanize action on one of the most complex and pressing issues of our time?
