ClimATE is an expanded exhibition and events programme across multiple sites and spaces in Aalto University’s Otaniemi campus showcasing research, prototypes, artworks, workshops, readings and screenings discussing climate change and food systems.

We are curious about how food might help us to understand the impacts of climate change and the Anthropocene.  In line with this, ClimATE reflects on how what we eat has a hold on the PlAnET, and influences EArTh systems and climATE change.

From October 24 until November 21, food leads discussion in different spaces across Aalto. The programme brings us together in practical and surprising ways to exchange thoughts, skills and knowledge as well as food and recipes. The post-disciplinary approach invites us to practice citizenscience at the intersection of art, science and activism, and to create a basis for cross-disciplinary dialogue on the way forward. Hopefully, the new possibilities for expression and collaboration help us to rethink the current food system with all its faults in the face of climate change, and offer different ways to think about about what we (will) EAT.
