Slowing down, and art as comfort and communication

It’s been a busy time and my next Conversations on Climate post is overdue – but in the meantime, have a look at this conversation Sam Mowe has with the New Yorker’s Elizabeth Kolbert and the Buddhist monk Matthieu Ricard on emotional responses to environmental destruction and climate change. The conversation was published on the Garrison Institute website, itself a wonderful source of hope and inspiration. The conversation touches on the role of art in communicating climate change, and the need to slow down – for the health of ourselves and the planet.

I’ll be back soon with a new blog.
