Focusing on practices of care, this conversational event brings together four disciplines in the context of environmental issues and air quality. 

Curator Marina Velez, environmental scientist Douglas Crawford-Brown, mathematician Paul Linden and artist Sarah Strachan will discuss Sarah’s work 'The Air We Breathe’. 

Involving families around the world, this collaborative art work reflects on personal experience of air quality and intergenerational environmental justice, touching upon the idea that our childhood experiences of the environment are hard wired into our ecological thinking and establishes awareness for the rest of our life. The conversation explores artistic and scientific ways of addressing the same subject and investigate commonalities in art and science practices of care.

Douglas Crawford-Brown, Professor Emeritus, University of North Caroline at Chapel Hill & University of Cambridge

Paul Linden, Professor of Fluid Mechanics, Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, University of Cambridge  

Event presented as part of Cambridge Zero Climate Change Festival.
