UK-Russia Creative Commissions programme brings together art, science and digital technology and offers innovative, interdisciplinary and collaborative responses to climate change.
Looking after the planet requires understanding and empathy, collaboration and connections, imagination, and innovation.
In our fourth survey of almost 40,000 young people across 36 countries, including the G20, climate change is perceived to be the most important issue to these young people (age 18 – 34).
The UK hosted the 26th United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow from 31 October – 12 November 2021, in partnership with Italy. This was the largest international climate change summit the UK has hosted, bringing together over 30,000 delegates - including heads of states, climate experts and campaigners - to agree a coordinated action to tackle climate change.
The UK-Russia Creative Commissions programme is one of many activities the British Council is delivering to support the success and legacy of COP26 to create opportunities for cooperation, dialogue and action which address the shared challenge of climate change.
