Prior to the talks in Paris today, regarding how our world leaders will treat environmental issues, I went to this discussion in Cardiff at the Abacus. It was an open discussion/talk, outlining critical world environmental issues and how we might tackle them. Topics discussed included fracking, and other means of energy and how we might change this to cleaner sources, as well as local food growing and living closer to nature. These are all things I am very interested in and I introduced myself as a third year Art Student who was interested in drawing attention to the world’s environmental issues,through art. This session was particularly heated and loud, but hopefully at future meetings, I will be able to discuss potential community projects and art pieces that could start to challenge preconceptions and current life style choices in the local area.
