After working on several art projects revealing dramatic ecological effects of overconsumption, pollution and waste, Chris Jordan finds the solution in beauty. Millions of aggressive threatening messages from environmentalists result in panic, withdrawal or even numbness and rejection of science. Raising concerns about nature, climate change, and the future of our planet are not productive anymore. Instead, Chris sees a solution in a healing power of beauty which re-orients our mental compasses, focuses on kindness, spirituality and universal love. That individual contribution that everyone can make has to come from a point of calm, confidence and clear understanding of environmental responsibilities we all carry. COVID pandemic has changed the word dramatically. There is a major need to re-calibrate our attitudes, behaviour and lifestyle and Chris offers a powerful starting point on this journey.
Join our online talk and celebrate World Environment Day exploring alternative, peaceful and sustainable approaches to environmental issues.

SPEAKER – CHRIS JORDAN
Photographer, producer and popular TED speaker, Chris Jordan explores the collective shadow of contemporary mass culture from a variety of photographic and conceptual perspectives. Edge-walking the lines between beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible, Jordan’s images confront the enormous power of humanity’s collective will. His works are exhibited and published worldwide.
