Women & Climate Change

 
 

We partnered with Invisible Dust for a weekend of workshops, talks and creative, open discussions about climate change - positioning women at the forefront.

Artist Kasia’s performance involved dancers wearing striking outfits, lit by pulsing lights that represented changing levels of pollution. Dancing down Drummond Street and the Euston Green Link to the sound of breathing switching from deep to short and raspy, it was a visual and creative representation of the effects of pollution - not only on our environment but on our bodies.

GAYLE KWON CHANG

Precluding our dancer performance, we enjoyed a multi-sensory banquet designed by artist Gayle Kwon Chang. Locally sourced produce turned in to a fabulous three course meal by Skip Garden, which we considered how our individual and collective choices impact on climate change, the disproportionate effect on some countries and the health of future generations.

BRITISH LIBRARY SUMMIT

The weekend also included a day of talks and workshops at the British Library. The topics were of a fascinating range - imaginative, artistic reactions to the climate change emergency, Q&As with women who have shaped groundbreaking international policy, founders of startups addressing period poverty whilst also stemming the environmental impact of sanitary items.

The Invisible Dust weekend was a triumphant two days where both women and men came together to share exciting and passionate ideas and anecdotes. It was a fully inclusive forum which also helped put Euston Town on the map, ahead of the curve in a forward thinking environmental and gender discussion.

It encapsulates all we want to achieve with the Euston Green Link - an inviting initiative which encourages free thought and expression, solutions, innovation and unity.
