What is Creative Climate Leadership?

Creative Climate Leadership (CCL) is a transformation programme for creative changemakers committed to taking action on the climate crisis through the arts and culture.

Morschach, March 2024: Foogy, rainy days assembled with the magic of snow gave an unsuspected charm to this extraordinary week, like a trip through Miyazaki's Castle in the Sky. Have a look at the trailer and/or the film and enjoy!

CCL empowers artists and cultural professionals to take action on the climate and ecological crisis with impact, creativity, and resilience. Participants will deepen their understanding of the climate and ecological crises, understand and develop the role of culture and creativity in responding to these challenges, and emerge with a toolbox and network for transformative action.

The first CCL Switzerland programme will be delivered in 2024 by Julie’s Bicycle in partnership with Vert Le Futur, initiated and funded by Pro Helvetia and Stiftung Mercator Schweiz.

In a group together with other changemakers, participants can expect to learn and unlearn together, nurture creative possibilities, strengthen communities of practice, and refocus on what the arts and culture can bring to the climate movement.

CCL Switzerland will take place 3 – 8 March 2024 at Mattli Antoniushaus in Morschach, Switzerland. The extraordinary group of creative climate changemakers work in a variety of areas from writing to curation, across a range of artforms including architecture, music, theatre, visual arts and dance.
